The Pitch

Problem statement

We work in an area of high deprivation with young people and their families who are traditionally excluded from nature based activities. Last summer we ran a summer camp and over 70% of participants were from BAME communities and over 60% in receipt of free school meals. We also learnt that almost all of them had not been to any nature or countryside settings outside london.


We will work with experienced facilitators to deliver a series of fun, creative activities during the school summer holidays in an award winning community garden. The activities will focus on the value of water and encourage the young people to develop their awareness and creative ways to promote nature, water and wastewater awareness in their communities. Your support will allow us to deliver a series of 6 summer workshops where young people will have the opportunity to creatively co-create water and nature based awareness resources (be that recordings, written information, or musical pieces) to share in their communities.

Why are we best placed to deliver?

We have been delivering summer arts in nature based activities for young people over the pasty 10 years. Last year we developed our offer and attracted many young people from deprived backgrounds due to our partnership work with the local authority, something they are eager to continue with us this year. We are fully risk assessed, insured and have all necessary policies in place.
