Shaping Spaces (Ages 16-25)


YMCA Bradford






YMCA Bradford

Our free wellbeing programme is for young adults 16–25 in the Bradford area who want to get outside, make friends, and improve their wellbeing. Spending time out in nature is proven to be very beneficial for our mental and physical health, especially when we slow down and notice our surroundings (mindfulness).

Participants of Shaping Spaces 16-25, will spend time with a small group of young adults in beautiful green spaces around Bradford, improving wellbeing, increasing social interaction, and building connection with nature, each other and with self.

The programme runs on Wednesdays during the day. Our base is at Culture Fusion on Thornton Road and we will set out from and return to there in our minibus each session.  Participants can attend up to 26 sessions.

We support participants to:

  • Build new friendships
  • Increase their confidence and self-esteem
  • Connect more with nature and themselves
  • Improve their personal wellbeing
  • Gain tools to enable them to maintain their wellbeing     after the programme
  • Develop their future plans and life skills
