Green Light for a Brighter Future

by | Oct 15, 2021 | Community, Keepsake, Nature and Walks

Green Light Trust (GLT) is a well-respected environmental charity, which uses the Power of Nature to help people who are struggling with their mental health or other personal challenges such as chronic illness, long-term unemployment, recovery from addiction, offending history, victims of violence or abuse or other traumatic experiences. Each year we support around 2000 adults, children, and young people to overcome any personal barriers they have to life progression and transform their lives. Those seeking support can attend progressive wellbeing and educational ‘EARTH’ courses in GLT’s woodland locations at Lawshall, Martlesham Heath,  RSPB Minsmere in Suffolk, and at RSPB Strumpshaw Fen near Norwich.

Courses are free to attend, with various courses running at any one time. Activities include: learning about ecology and natural animal habitats, coppicing and planting, crafting with wood and willow, campfire cooking and bushcraft, walks, and nature meditation. Courses are designed to reduce anxiety and social isolation and improve mental and physical wellbeing, confidence, and self-esteem. They typically run for 1 day a week over an 8-12 week period and include a free campfire lunch and refreshments throughout the day.

We are currently taking bookings in Norfolk at our RSPB Strumpshaw Fen location, near Norwich. Bookings for courses can be made online by individuals on a self-refer basis, or through a referring organisation. Details of current courses and how to book can be found on GLT’s website under the Courses/Book a Course page or contact GLT by calling 01284 830829 or email
