What we'll do
This will be an opportunity to discuss the way that we work with adults in a Forest School setting. This will be mainly focused on "Wellbeing" groups for adults struggling with social isolation and mental health but may cover other areas too. Inspired by the work that Jenny had been doing at Young Wood in the Blackdown Hills, Stuart began offering adult sessions at Hakeford Woods in North Devon in 2017. These sessions offer a weekly opportunity for adults struggling with poor mental health and social isolation to spend time in the natural environment in a non judgmental situation where there are opportunities to get involved with a variety of tasks and activities as well as socialising with a mix of different people.

My experience consists of a leisure activity, on a specific date(s), and therefore the 14-day ‘cooling off period’ under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 does not apply.
