Froglife’s Peterborough Neighbourhood Wildlife Corridors Project helps vulnerable and disadvantaged young people to take part in positive activities linked to wildlife and conservation.
What’s on offer?
We run long-term projects with sessions over 5 – 10 weeks. We develop the sessions to best suit the needs of the group and available space.
We deliver sessions to a diverse set of young people. We work with schools, youth groups and clubs.
Sessions consist of practical outdoor activities in green spaces. Young people will gain confidence, social skills and knowledge of the environment and conservation.
Activities during these sessions might include:
- Pond or mini pond creation
- Constructing wildlife homes such as hibernacula (amphibian refuges)
- Bug hotel construction
- Species identification
- Wildlife-inspired craft activities
Who can get involved?
We work with young people who fit the criteria of being vulnerable or disadvantaged in Peterborough or Whittlesey.
Eligibility for the project includes:
- Living in an area of deprivation
- Mental health issues
- Black or minority ethnic
- Physical or psychological difficulties
- Learning disabilities
- Identified as needing Additional Support for Learning
This list is not exhaustive; please get in touch to discuss your young person’s eligibility for the project.
How much does it cost?
We are able to offer this as a free scheme thanks to our funder The Swire Charitable Trust.
