CURRENT COURSES (June 2022)
The Green Light Trust have some FREE upcoming Natural Alternatives courses that we are running at Strumpshaw Fen, just outside Norwich and Blickling Hall near Aylsham.
These courses are aimed at young people aged 16 to 25 who are struggling with life progression and wellbeing due to mental health or other barriers.
You can book clients onto the courses via the NCAN referral system if you have an account; we will contact them and offer to enrol them, or directly from our website.
Participants are also able to self-refer and complete the booking forms at the following links:
The courses run one day a week for 6 weeks, from 10am – 2:30pm. A free cooked campfire lunch is included in the day. Participants will have the opportunity to learn a number of practical woodland management, green woodworking, woodland craft and bushcraft skills.
If you are booking on behalf of a young person who requires support to attend sessions you are welcome to attend all or part of the course. Please note places are limited for these courses.
We may be able to assist with transport, however this will depend on location and availability and is not guaranteed.
