Are you a practitioner working in Nature and Health? Join our next Practitioners Network meeting online.

At the meeting there will be time to share practice and experiences, discussions on collaborations and emerging opportunities, and any relevant updates on work in the health and the natural environment in the West of England. At this meeting we are going to be particularly focusing on issues around accessibility, hearing from some local exerts and programmes providing opportunities for people with a range of physical and hidden disabilities.

The field of Nature and Health has gained growing interest in recent years with a growing evidence base of the benefits of the natural environment for our health and wellbeing, emerging approaches and a developing service provision across the UK. To support this growing movement in the West of England, the Network aims to provide space for a wide range of practitioners working across Green Care, Eco-Therapy and other nature-based health and wellbeing services to:

Access peer reflection, networking, support, learning and CPD;

Establish some of the key standards and quality assurance needed for partners, funders, commissioners, participants and practitioners to feel that they are offering a safe, effective and professional service;

Build connections between practitioners, prescribers and funders; and

Find out about updates and collaborate with the WENP Nature and Health Strategy Group regarding local and national initiatives, policy and research.
