Our Thrive programme promotes positive mental wellbeing for young people through deep nature experiences and respite from daily life. Thrive uses woodland survival skills, nature connection and spending time outdoors with others to nurture individuals. We offer high levels of support in small group settings where we address individual needs and help young people to develop strategies to improve mental wellbeing.

Programmes are led by the Thrive Project Co-ordinator and are supported by adult volunteers who together support young people to develop healthy personal relationships built on trust.

Thrive programmes take place mid-week and are delivered in the following ways:

  • Our Multi-Agency programme involves up to 6 young people who meet once a week during term time. This programme is ongoing with renewed booking each term.
  • 6-8 week programme with young people from a single agency (school, youth group etc) as an initial support.

Thrive receives referrals from mental health agencies, social workers and school staff.
