Wild Skills Wild Spaces Project

An innovative collaboration between the Welsh NHS and the Montgomeryshire Wildlife Trust (MWT) the project will deliver a range of nature-based solutions to improve the health, skills and well-being of our local communities. New and existing habitats will be created and managed with project groups to spend meaningful time understanding and managing areas of local wildlife value.

The nature reserves improved by the project will enable local communities to safely explore riverside habitats, woodlands, grasslands, canal side, wetland and upland environments. The project will also focus on developing a structured, accredited programme of nature based activities to enable people to participate in the ‘Five Ways to Wellbeing’, that improve health & wellbeing, develop new skills, build confidence and reduce social isolation. The aim is for this to be available for direct referral from the NHS and GP’s as well as openly to local communities across Montgomeryshire.
