Over the years we have received so much support from so many different people and organizations, we want to say a big thank you to all of them – read on who they are.

The majority of the groups that Wild Things works with are supporting children and young people in need from marginalised groups in society, who are affected by multiple barriers to social, emotional and educational well being. These barriers the children face usually mean that the children cannot access experiences in the natural world.

Wild Things is committed to finding the support and funding necessary to get these children and young people out to the woods, and give them the chance to experience all the benefits this can bring.

Below is a far from complete list of the funds and organisations that have made it possible for us to continue our campaign for over 20 years. If we have left you off our list by mistake, please let us know and we will add you on!
