Access to green spaces and spending time outdoors is fantastic for our wellbeing. ‘Great Outdoors Malpas’ project helped older people to access the countryside and reconnect with nature. Activities included practical conservation volunteering, wildlife gardening, wildlife photography, landscape painting, bee keeping and bird watching – allowing people to develop new skills and interests whilst rediscovering the physical, mental and social benefits of being outdoors. Supported activities such as nature walks for people with dementia also proved popular and extremely beneficial for all participants.
