Warwickshire Wildlife Trust

We can offer projects to assess as case studies, working in urban areas in Coventry and Solihull in particular with a range of ages, engaging people in caring for the natural environment. We have a project that is working with people in area of deprivation and assessing their level of well being before during and after engagement. We have active volunteer groups of 10 -20 people attending each day, 3-4 days/week that regularly undertake practical activities in the natural environment both urban and rural areas. We run both educational and informal sessions with children engaging them with the natural environment, ages 2- 18. We work in partnership with many organisations to develop and deliver active projects and wish to extend the range of health focussed schemes we run. We are working at a landscape scale to restore biodiversity and engage people in caring for their environment, on 2 major projects in North Warwickshire and Rugby/Warwick districts
