LEAF Project (Learning to Enable Achievement and Fulfilment)


Project Description:

The LEAF project spans Mid and West Wales and will create opportunities for disadvantaged people to access well-being woodland activities, woodland skills training courses, week long intensive training in sector specific activities, mentoring, work placements and support for fledgling enterprises.

Project Achievements:

Tir Coed does not currently operate in Pembrokeshire, therefore a pilot will help Tir Coed train staff and continue to build relationships with stakeholders of the project before the full project is launched in December 2017. It will also give Tir Coed a chance to learn from the different partnership approaches being taken in each county (Ceredigion, Powys and Pembrokeshire) and identify how best to evaluate and share learning across the counties. The LEAF project is designed to enable deep rooted change in each participant’s life, offering bespoke progression that works with the skills and aspirations of the individual.

Project Beneficiaries:

Youth Justice Service, young carers, alternative education provision, mental health service users, substance misuse support groups, family centres, children with disabilities, offenders, looked after children, youth groups, military veterans, adults with learning disabilities, refugees, primary schools.
