BOTH VETERANS AND CIVILIANS ARE WELCOME TO VOLUNTEER.

The Community Project
We understand the importance to learn and develop knowledge and understanding of the outside space, as it is a much richer context than the indoors. A dynamic space where you can learn about nature, grow your own vegetables or fruits, take part in other outdoor activities and breathe in the clean air. A feel good factor that you are engaging in nature and supporting the environment.
A journey being involved in the outdoor community projects, involving yourself in group tasks, learning, participating, creating a healthy body and a healthy mind. These will all play a pivotal role in self-esteem and raising confidence. In our 7-Step Civilian Skills program, Step 5 is all about a healthy body a healthy mind. How we look at what we eat, the importance of daily exercise, the outdoors clean air and participating in group activities. All of which will have a positive effect on your mental health.
