About Haven Wood

Run by a Clinical Psychologist and qualified teacher, at the centre we aim to provide the opportunity for the young people we work with to have positive experiences and genuine successes.

We typically cater well for young people who are struggling to engage with learning and the school environment or young people with disability. We aim to offer learning and rehabilitation, but also to improve mental health and well-being through our structured programmes of learning.

Our practical activities promote skill development in relation to attention, problem-solving, and communication in the social setting. Hence we cater for young people with most levels of additional need. We cover a wide-ranging and complex area, so we welcome questions about the support we can offer.

Our activities are tailored to clients needs

We teach young people how their natural environment can provide for them and meet their needs. Typically working with people aged 8 - 25, young people find that our activities are therapeutic.

Learn how to live off the land, build shelters, find food sources, craft tools from natural materials, basic survival skills, primitive cooking & woodworking.

Book an activity

Each attendee needs a referal, we encourage telephone and email enquiry and our clinical psychologist may require additional information to assess the applicant for suitability, or in order to inform the activity programme we select for the attendee. In this regard we can accept young people with fairly complex needs by negotiation.

Support workers and Teaching assistants are welcome to attend with their attendee, their attendance is free.
