Pathways to Resilience

Our mission is to improve the life chances of disadvantaged and vulnerable children and young people experiencing challenges at home, at school and in the community.


Many of the children and young people we work with, aged from 0 - 16, come from families affected by substance misuse, alcohol abuse and domestic violence.


Nature Nurture is the first early intervention programme in the UK that tackles vulnerability and promotes resilience by combining free play and nurturing interactions in natural environments.

Nature Nurture & Camphill Wellbeing Trust launch a new fund to support the work of the Nature Nurture Project. The Nature Nurture Fund has a target this year of £150,000. This can provide 120 children with a place on a Nature Nurture programme... more


Fund raising activities will include high profile events throughout the year and we’ll keep you up to date with our progress on a regular basis.
