Children's learning, confidence and mental health was severely affected by the pandemic as they missed out on key years of social development. This has left many children anxious, lacking communication skills and struggling at school, especially if they are not suited to working within the four walls.
Our project supports children with additional support needs and/or in poverty to escape into nature to feel happier, healthier and more confident as they develop lifelong skills, make friends and thrive in the natural environment.
We provide 5-week school programs, after school programs, residentials and day sessions for school classes.
NEW FOUND CONFIDENCE
“My name is Evie and I’m 10 years old and I attended kids Clarity Walk and I loved it.
What I liked the most was being out in the Forrest and learning about the trees and plants and using nature for games. It was really good fun. I enjoyed running about in the Forest and feeling freedom, and I felt safe with Matt, Natalie and Maggie as they were joining in and teaching us new things.
I liked that it was really good exercise and it helped me to be fitter too and more confident helping me to make friends outside of my own school.
I looked forward to it every week. I would love to go again!”
