Making Local Woods Work supported woodland-based social enterprises in the UK

We worked with 50 groups at various stages of development, all of whom were looking to undertake new activity to provide a range of benefits for local people, bring woodlands into active management and generate trading income.

They all received support to realise their vision for their woodlands creating opportunities for jobs, leisure, and education, and to improve the health and wellbeing of local people.

How you can still get involved

Over the course of the project we shared resources, information and events that anyone with an interest in or involved with woodland social enterprise could attend, all of which were shared via our website at www.makinglocalwoodswork.org.

You can catch further updates on by ‘Liking’ our Facebook page or ‘Following’ us on Twitter.

You could also join the Woodland Social Enterprise Network which is a closed Facebook group for those interested and involved in social enterprise – www.facebook.com/groups/woodlandsocialenterprisenetwork
