This project will work in partnership with the Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales, and Swansea and Neath Port Talbot Forest School. We will deliver woodland activities for health and wellbeing, and volunteer training courses at a number of sites within the rural wards of Swansea, with expected outcomes:
1. Improved management of greenspace sites for biodiversity and amenity value
2. Greater community cohesion and participation through volunteering and gaining new skills
3. Improved health and wellbeing of members of the community with poor health and sedentary lifestyles
4. Improved skills of volunteers, participants and activity leaders
Swansea NPT Forest School will lead on programmes of activities for families with young children, which will focus on physical activity, group engagement in games and skill learning, with an additional focus on nutrition and healthy eating taught mainly through campfire cooking and food foraging.
Wildlife Trust will lead on provision of Agored certified training courses for volunteers, in partnership with Coed Lleol who are registered as an Agored training centre.
