Working with nature
Neroche Woodlanders is a social enterprise based at Young Wood, one hundred acres of magical and beautiful forest on the edge of the Blackdown Hills near Taunton in Somerset.
Young Wood is a wild, inspiring place where nature is our setting, our muse and our guide. We work with that nature to improve people's lives, while making the woods richer for wildlife.
We encourage children, young people, adults, families and organisations to learn about the nature around them, to find their own place in the world, to build connections with others and to experience a deeper connection with their own wild nature.
Through all of this we aim to celebrate the beauty and diversity of this Earth and to do our part to help care for it.
"Your work is inspirational and such a good example of diverse partners coming together and innovating in the care and support of vulnerable people. Hugely down to your energy and commitment I’m sure. It’s been a pleasure to learn about you and I wish you the very best for Neroche Woodlanders and all who sail in her."

What a wonderful 3 hours with such incredible facilitators, volunteers and 4 other families. It’s such a gift to access a few moments to have ‘normal’ conversations with other adults around the camp fire knowing all the children are Safe with the ‘yes space’ along with brilliant creative thinking meaning you can really relax.
