At the Young Cart Shed, we provide outdoor activities for children and young adults in a safe and welcoming woodland environment.

Our team of Young Cart Shed tutors, health professionals and volunteers work with schools, health professionals and parents of home educated children to provide a space to share in activities and gain appropriate support as and when needed.

Our experience shows that working with parents/carers and their children together can really help move things forward. We explore ways to support emotional wellbeing in a fun, creative non-judgmental environment whilst also providing opportunities to learn new skills such as green woodwork, basket making, horticulture and outdoor cookery.

As a result of advice from government advisors, The Cart Shed Charity has suspended its daily woodland activities until further notice.

Our fantastic team of dedicated staff is rising to the challenge this pandemic presents and has created an entirely new service to support our participants, volunteers and each other. We are providing phone support and online courses.
