Shaping Spaces (All Ages)


YMCA Bradford






YMCA Bradford

Shaping Spaces All Ages is a free programme run by BEES (Bradford Environmental Education Service), part of YMCA Bradford. BEES specialise in environmental education and practical conservation work around the Bradford district and, over 30+ years, has encouraged hundreds of people to get out, connect with nature and support our local wildlife. Through this many have found that they feel calmer and their spirits lift when in green spaces

Our new Shaping Spaces All Ages programme, for people aged 18 and over, is a blend of BEES wellbeing and conservation work. For about three hours on Thursdays, participants and two staff will work on light conservation or environmental tasks whilst also spending time together enjoying a beautiful local green space. The project will work with small groups of people who are wanting to learn new skills, make new connections and improve their wellbeing, learn about conservation and nature, and keep active whilst doing something positive for wildlife and for Bradford.

Staff will create a safe and welcoming space for all and will take time to explain what we are doing so that everyone is clear about what is expected of them. No experience of conservation or practical work is necessary but participants should be willing to be outside in rain and shine, heat and cold. Participants can attend up to 26 sessions.

Course Duration:
Participants can access up to 26 sessions within 12 months
