We’re Branching Out!

We are delighted to be working in conjunction with Forestry Commission Scotland to deliver their award-winning Branching Out programme. Beginning in February, over a period of 12 weeks we shall be working with adults who use mental health services. We are running the project in partnership with NHS Dumfries and Galloway.

The programme will take place in woodland close to Dalbeattie. It includes physical activity, conservation activity, bushcraft and environmental art – culminating where applicable in the award of a John Muir certificate.

Volunteer training is well underway, but we are always on the lookout for folk to join our programme. If you feel you or someone you know would benefit from working towards becoming an assistant volunteer leader, do get in touch by sending an email to
