"I have really enjoyed the course, just wished they lasted longer. It gives me a sense of purpose, to learn and to feel at ease and that there is no pressure. I really don’t want this to end!!!"

Young Cart Shed

Our new programme: Young Cart Shed, offers a unique opportunity for parent and child to experience the outdoors in a safe and welcoming woodland environment.


We are currently not running our Monday sessions. Please check back for upcoming dates.



Young Cart Shed


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.

 We work with young people aged 10 – 25 with Mondays dedicated to 10 – 18 year olds and their parents/carers.

Our team of Young Cart Shed tutors, health professionals and volunteers work with schools, health professionals and parents of home educated children to provide a space to share in activities and gain appropriate support as and when needed.
Our experience shows that working with parents/carers and their children together can really help move things forward. We explore ways to support emotional wellbeing in a fun, creative non-judgmental environment whilst also providing opportunities to learn new skills such as green woodwork, basket making, horticulture and outdoor cookery.
