ARE YOU INTERESTED IN IMPROVING YOUR HEALTH, LEARNING NEW SKILLS, OR SIMPLY MEETING NEW PEOPLE? THEN PLEASE READ ON...

The Cart Shed is a charity based in North Herefordshire that offers opportunities to try something new and improve well-being; to find friendships, a sense of belonging and a place of calm, in a supportive, caring environment.

Our woodlands lend themselves to enabling individuals to overcome and accept episodes in their lives they find difficult to live with; such as a result of the loss of a partner or close friend, difficult working conditions, or poor health.

We work with individuals from all backgrounds, lifting labels and minimizing stigma. There are no walls, badged health professionals or waiting rooms....

.... just the peace of the woodland.

Please feel free to browse our website to learn more about how we support our community and how you can take part in our fun courses. Don't hesitate to get in touch, we are always  just a click or phone call away, should you require further information.

As you know, The Cart Shed Team never left post and was determined to carry on providing a service throughout the lock-down period to those who need- and rely on us, via new means of delivery utilising tools for distance learning.

As part of our process to "Reawaken" the woods, we have been initially running woodland based courses for children of the active and veteran Armed Forces families, with great success.

Having worked tirelessly to make our sites Covid-ready, we are planning on starting our general adult programmes in September.

Because we know coming back to the woods just yet is not an option for many we will be carrying on offering our phone based service Mon-Fri 9am-5pm to our participants, which is complemented by text messages, emails, WhatsApp conversations and dedicated Facebook groups for particular courses.
