Get Out More is based in Keighley, West Yorkshire and runs programmes in communities Bradford district and beyond.  We are a Community Interest Company, a business with social and environmental aims which reinvests surpluses (profits) back into the communities in which we work.  We are proud to use any surplus to offer free sessions in areas of disadvantage and to support local woodland conservation projects through volunteering and donations.  Get Out More staff enjoy helping out at local environmental projects, litter picking, tree planting etc, and support the committed teams who look after the woods we love.

“On behalf of the Friends of St Ives I would like to thank you for the donation.  This is very kind and thoughtful of you and you can be assured that the money will be put to very good use.  You will always be welcome at St Ives particularly because you are offering opportunities to people who might not otherwise be able to experience the outdoors and giving them the chance to improve their physical and spiritual condition.  This is great work and we are thankful that you are doing it.”

John Rhodes, Secretary of Friends of St Ives. 

“Thank you for your kind donation. I think I can speak for all of us when I say we fully support the aims of Get Out More. I am heartened when as a social enterprise ‘you put your money where your mouth is’ and re-invest in the local community.”

Eric Yaffey, Chair of Friends of Park Wood

Get Out More’s Impact

Get Out More is a social enterprise on a mission to help people engage with nature to feel better in mind and body.  We use local woodlands, parks and green spaces to bring people together to be active and feel good, working towards our vision:  communities and nature growing healthier together.

To achieve our vision, we focus on four key objectives:

1. To develop people’s physical health and mental wellbeing through connecting with nature

2. To help people feel connected to their community and proud of where they live

3. To enable people to feel confident outdoors and share their skills with others

4. To support people to access local green spaces and help to look after them

Get Out More works with a number of skilled and experienced employed and freelance practitioners, who deliver our wide range of outdoor projects in settings from schools and businesses to holiday programmes, in woodlands across West and North Yorkshire.   If you are a qualified forest school practitioner interested in working with a friendly, hard working and motivated social enterprise, please get in touch.

We welcome volunteers to work alongside our paid practitioners.  People who have volunteered with us say they have gained valuable experience and confidence and we are pleased to see many of our volunteers go on to paid work with us or other organisations.  Volunteers can come for a couple of days, or come on a regular basis.  If you are interested in volunteering with us, complete and return an application form and we’ll be in touch: Get Out More – Volunteer Application Form

Thank you for allowing me to volunteer at forest school over the last 2 weeks. I have had a wonderful time. It has been so very different from doing it in a setting. I have improved my skills and become confident using the tools with the children, something I had not done before in my old job. The practitioners and other volunteers have been so supportive and encouraging and I enjoyed working with them all. Thank you once again for allowing me to be part of your team.

Catherine Denham, Volunteer

I started volunteering at holiday forest schools whilst undertaking my Forest School Leader training, then, once qualified, I was employed to support and later lead Forest Schools. I also feel that my volunteering experience with them helped give me the experience and confidence to secure work as an outdoor learning practitioner elsewhere.  Get Out More has got a good vibe and some amazing people.  I feel proud to be associated with it.
