Connecting urban children and families with nature

TGC is a charity and non-profit organisation.

We provide urban children and adults with transformative outdoor experiences devised to encourage active lifestyles, promote self-discovery, inspire growth and stimulate respect for nature.

We also maintain online resources that can support learning outdoors. Thanks to The Portal Trust for supporting this resource.

Our mission

Our mission is to support people to connect with nature, improving mental health, wellbeing and resilience,
