The Great Outdoors Project

Helping You to Thrive in Nature

The Great Outdoors Project is one of several projects delivered by the mental health and wellbeing charity S2R Create Space. We know from independent research and the testimony of our own participants, that connecting people with nature as part of a group in an outdoor activity or an indoor workshop is a great way to improve emotional and physical wellbeing, reduce anxiety, create social connections and learn about both ourselves and the natural world.


We offer all adults in Kirklees the chance to take their first steps into nature on our taster courses; to explore their relationship with the outdoors on mindful walks and through the direct experience of open spaces; to interact and contribute on practical tasks at our Community Allotment, Garden Upcycling or Work Days; to express themselves creatively using eco crafts, natural art, and photography and to be active and enjoy themselves by walking and running in the biggest gym possible.

it helped me a lot being outside"

"It gets you back in touch with nature"

"I’ve gained a sense of connectivity with myself, others and nature"
