Wilderness Foundation UK
Who we are
Wilderness Foundation UK have been at the heart of the global wilderness community for 40 years, working to keep people healthy and our planet wild!
The Wilderness Foundation UK is a charity based in rural essex that empowers young people to conserve nature and harnesses the power of the wilderness to transform vulnerable lives.
We engage with over 5,000 young people per year by helping them to reconnect to society and themselves through outdoor adventure, therapy and mentoring. Our outreach conservation programmes help develop future sustainability leaders, build resilience in vulnerable teenagers with challenging lives and mental health issues and bring curriculum-based sciences to life in the outdoors. We help young people to switch off technology and switch on reality.
