Natural England

Natural England staff and members of the National Outdoors for All Working Group and Strategic research Group have collaborated to develop this survey submission and are keen to work closely with the VNN on this research call. In particular we would like to collaborate to ensure that the research call and evidence, case studies and practice build on work to date and not duplicate effort. We have a matrix of evidence in this field, extensive case studies, wide partnerships of practitioners, policy makers and academics. Several research projects are underway or in the pipeline (such as the mental health, sustainability and environment fellowships being developed with the Centre for Sustainable Healthcare and others) which will be suitable for the call.
