Organisation Description

Get Out More believes we need nature, and nature needs us now more than ever. We are a social enterprise that exists to connect communities and nature, so we can all grow healthier together. We run outdoor programmes, including forest schools, community engagement, wellbeing and training programmes, for people of all ages across Bradford and beyond.
