What we do

With the help of nature and creativity we help young people explore how they feel about themselves, their relationships with others and with the world around them.

Why this is important

Belonging is a need we all have. Feeling excluded or unable to join in, for whatever reason, can bring up many deep emotional issues for young people.

How we help

With the help of music, nature, creative art projects, peer support groups and one to one support, we  help young people tap into difficult feelings they may have about themselves and others and find a way to overcome them.
