Wellbeing activities in the outdoors
for adults


We currently run wellbeing sessions in Keighley and Whafedale (Ilkley, Burley in Wharfedale, Addingham and Otley)

Wellbeing Wednesdays are weekly sessions in Keighley parks aimed at adults who would like to experience the health benefits of connecting with nature, in a supported, guided group.  Sessions can include walking in nature, sensory activities, Tai Chi, arts and crafts and campfire cooking. This project is supported by the Keighley Health Grant and Bupa Foundation.

Wharfedale Breathing Spaces are weekly sessions in parks and green spaces in Wharfedale. These sessions include Tai Chi, walking in nature and natural arts and crafts. These sessions may be prescribed by your social presciber. This project is run in partnership with Wharfedale Airedale Craven Alliance and supported by the Bupa Foundation, The National Lottery Community Fund and Enable 2.

Previous participants have said:

“Great session yesterday. Motivated me to go out on a walk this morning without listening to a podcast. Birdsong was amazing!”

“I noticed the new green leaves blowing in the wind. It gave me hope and that’s what we all need now.”

“These Wednesdays really pick me up and you two (Val and Julia) really work well together. See you on the March walk.”
