The Education Futures Trust is now delivering an exciting new project aimed at improving the life chances of disaffected young people aged 14 – 21 years. This unique project is located within 25 acres of magnificent, ancient woodland in the heart of Sussex.

This project is aiming to improve the life chances of young people through intensive outdoor learning and transformative immersion in nature which we believe will improve self-esteem, confidence, resilience and independence, giving young people a chance to escape negative cycles of behaviour, and offer opportunities to move onto voluntary or work placements.

The course ends with a tailored and supported volunteer or work placement.
