A Community Interest Company
Since we began, in December 2010, the Worcestershire Woodland Project (WWP) has engaged many adults with care and support needs from across Worcestershire. We provide participants with the opportunity to improve their levels of physical and mental health and wellbeing by contributing to conservation work and acquiring vocational and social skills using social forestry principles in a unique woodland setting. We have provided both non-accredited and accredited training for our participants and our commitment and focus is continuing to provide our participants with training to help support their goals and ambitions. .
