Nature empowers

Since our formation in 1989 we’ve helped thousands of people challenged with mental health issues; we’ve taught skills and self-esteem to children and adults who were disadvantaged or disconnected, and we’ve motivated and supported huge numbers of people seeking employment opportunities or an escape from their addictive or abusive pasts.

Explore our website to see how our educational and self-development programmes have brought about transformational impact for individuals, businesses, families and communities.
