Alternative Provision - Our Space (Education) Ltd


We are an outdoor, woodland-based provision based on the principles and ethos of Forest School and aimed at boosting confidence, resilience, self-esteem and emotional well-being through positive interaction with the natural woodland environment. 

Programmes are designed to meet client group needs and take the form of regular individual or group sessions led by a qualified practitioner. 

We work with schools, local authorities, hospitals, community groups and private individuals.
