Nature4Health

Nature4Health was a successful three year project funded by The Big Lottery's Reaching Communities Programme to tackle health inequalities in targeted communities across The Mersey Forest.

The programme provided health-promoting, enjoyable group activities in a green, therapeutic environment for just under 2,000 participants.


Activities included woodland walks, therapeutic gardening and practical conservation sessions to get the heart pumping, as well as the meditation technique of mindfulness in a natural setting. Sessions were targeted at both adults and children and were designed to be welcoming to complete beginners.

 

There were also opportunities for people to get involved in learning the skills needed to help out with managing the sessions, boosting their experience for the job market.


The Mersey Forest managed Nature4Health via the Community Forest Trust, and worked with a range of partners to run the activities. Both Liverpool University and Liverpool John Moores University studied the programme to see how it impacts on people's health.
