Green Light Trust is excited to announce that it has recently received a Big Lottery Reaching Communities Award Grant for over £300,000 enabling us to launch an exciting new project: Project Wild Haven.
Over the next 4 years, Green Light Trust will work with around 250 hard to reach, isolated and disadvantaged people living in the Great Yarmouth area. The project aims to improve their physical and mental health, skills and qualifications.
Our Educational Leader in Norfolk, Sarah Dyball will be leading sessions with Assistant Leader Frances West, working in partnership with Gt Yarmouth and WaveneyMind to offer sessions for young people, residents from a women’s refuge in the area and lonely or isolated people alongside other local residents. There will be structured learning activities, where those taking part will benefit from learning new skills such as traditional woodland management and can also work towards an accredited conservation qualification if they wish, or the John Muir Award.
