The Craft Work Project

Adults with Support Needs/ Social Prescribing/ Woodland Wellbeing

The Craft Work project group carries out light woodland management (clearing/lopping/sawing), habitat creation. – as well as creative activities like path-making, outdoor cooking, and woodwork – from bird boxes, to benches to bigger constructions.

It’s a person centered group – where the activity is both therapeutic and productively minded.

We have have awarded a Awards for All Lottery grant – to consult and co-create a new hands on provision for people with support needs focusing on people with a learning disability and people on the autistic spectrum. One idea is to explore the development of a small sheltered enterprise. These sessions are not only an opportunity for people to try out the woodland but also to be an active part of the design of a new local provision for Amber valley.
