BOBS in nature


Health + Creativity + Community = Wellbeing

Being Our Best Selves in Nature is a creative wellbeing programme supporting learning disabled adults to connect with the Sussex environment and the beautiful natural spaces around us, for the benefit of their mental and physical health. 

It is well evidenced that learning disabled people experience significant health inequalities which have increased during the pandemic.


This project focuses on natural environments across Sussex and offers creative activity sessions, including supported nature walks and supplemented with resources and creative activities. 

Participants will follow a specially designed and facilitated ‘Wellbeing Journey’, which will consist of blended arts and health activities and accessible creative journaling.

The programme explores the benefits of being in nature and increasing the positive engagement of learning disabled adults through increased self confidence, new knowledge and skills and improved communication, social skills and health outcomes.

Funded through the National Lottery Community Fund, this project will be launched in the summer of 2022.
