Changing Children's Futures

Changing Children's Futures from Earth Trust on Vimeo.

Earth Trust wants to change the future for more children like Maja and Jack; providing them with skills, experience and confidence to broaden their future opportunities.
With your donation and support we can do just that.

Countryside Skills is a fantastic outdoor learning programme unique to Earth Trust, designed specifically for young people with special educational needs and those who struggle in a traditional classroom environment. Students have the chance to expand their career opportunities by earning a GCSE equivalent skills based qualification, accredited by the Open College Network.

Students grow in self-belief and confidence with every Countryside Skills session, run by our highly qualified, inspiring specialist tutors. By learning a variety of hands-on outdoor skills, including coppicing and animal husbandry, students are empowered to raise their self-esteem and future aspirations. The programme is offered at various levels, encouraging students to aim high and reach their full potential.

We’d like to open these opportunities up to even more children like Maja and Jack, but to do so, we need your support.
