About us ...

We think that if everyone could spend a bit more time outside in nature, that the world would be a better place.

Suzy is a level 3 qualified Forest Schools Leader and holds a PG CERT in Youth and Community.  She has many years experience (since 2001) as a youth worker in various settings, working with children and young people from a variety of backgrounds and with different abilities.  She is the founder and director of Go Wild With Us and has been successfully reconnecting children, young people and adults with nature since 2008.

Chris is a qualified outdoor adventure leader with 20 years experience in the field (and the water and the mountain!).  He is director of CBM outdoors, putting Adventure back into the lives of children and young people and adults from Croydon and beyond.

All our staff have enhanced CRB checks

Steph is level 3 Forest School qualified, Anne Marie is level 2 Forest School trained and both are qualified youth workers with lots of experience of working with a variety of children, young people and adults in the outdoors.  Esther is Level 3 Forest School qualified, with a background in dance therapy and specialises in work with pre-school ages.  They all have specialist experience in working with children and young people with learning difficulties and disabilities.  

We have a team of magnificent assistants with a variety of skills including Damian, Andy, Jon, Darren, Siobhan, Glenn, Pip and Chris, who are all experienced in working outdoors with children and young people.

And where would we be without our fabulous volunteers?!  Anton, Jamie and H - all of whom were part of Forest Project for many years as young people, and who now help us out on a regular basis.
