My son got the chance to make friends which is not easy for him as he has ADHD and also he got to explore and learn about the outdoors.
What a sense of achievement and camaraderie
My son has a great interest in trees. The trust’s tree nursery has inspired him to plant oaks, ash, holly and beech and he’s had a terrific success with them so far.
The activities provided have a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of our clients with learning disabilities. Parents and carers remark on how the clients have grown in self esteem and confidence with increased independence.
Staff abound with enthusiasm, their flair and skills are easy to see in all their work. Thank you for having me as a Conservation Volunteer and thank you for all the new skills I’ve learned.
Working with the MHT has given me the chance to explore practical conservation work with people just like me. Thanks for the opportunities so far and I hope to stay for as long as I can!
I want to thank all of you for giving my daughter such wonderful experiences. Behavioural difficulties mean she has spent a lot of time isolated from her peers. I do not know if it is the activities, the leadership or the group, but it works!! It has helped my daughter develop her communication skills and enabled her to work as part of a team.
This is by no means token volunteering, it gives our group the opportunity to be environmentally responsible adults, regardless of their disability, giving them a sense of pride.
