Trees for Wilder Wellbeing

Woodland wellbeing for Armed Forces Veterans

Thanks to funding from the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust, Warwickshire Wildlife Trust will be working in partnership with Achieving Results in Communities (ARC) to deliver ‘Wilder Wellbeing in the Woods’.

We are offering armed forces veterans living in Coventry and Warwickshire a FREE 8-week woodland wellbeing course.

Join other veterans spending one day a week in the woods making fires, learning and sharing bush craft skills, swapping stories, exploring and managing the woodland and using nature to feel well.

Course dates will be confirmed as soon as COVID-19 restrictions on group sizes are eased. We will let you know as soon as we have confirmed dates and times. In the meantime, if you would like to receive more details about the course and let us know that you’re interested, please contact Man-Lan Adams on:

What's the experience like?

Here's a quote from a veteran who experienced a Bushcraft course with us. After completing the course this veteran became a walks leader for The Ramblers Association’ in Coventry: 

The group camaraderie enriched the experience, helping each person to learn and grow

Strangers became friends who now share each other’s feelings and abilities

Initial scepticism changed to enthusiasm thanks to the staff from TEaM and members of the group working together
