December Newsletter.

Welcome to our Skill Mill newsletter where we will keep you informed of what's going on across all our existing sites and our upcoming future plans.

The Benefits of Time Spent in Nature

Researchers have consistently highlighted the benefits of time spent in natural environments. The young people who are employed by The Skill Mill spend a great deal of time in woodland. They also pick up crafts and skills such as tree planting, whilst learning about the natural environment. The impact on reoffending rates continues to be amazing, whilst the young people also benefit from improved wellbeing and increased levels of confidence. Further to this,

it has been found that the benefits of nature continue beyond the duration of the time spent there. A study measured the happiness and health levels of a group of people prior to their participation in a nature programme, during the programme, and afterwards. The findings showed that happiness and health levels improved during participation in the programme, and were sustained for months after the programme had been completed.
