ACCESS/DEMENTIA FRIENDLY

We welcome people of all ages and abilities to the wood. 

The cabin is fully accessible by wheelchair and available to those who wish to warm up by the wood-buring stove. (NB Access is at the far end of the decking platform).

The toilet, which is 20 metres from the cabin is fully accessible. (Normally this is only open during organised sessions but the key may be provided on request to other groups and individuals).

The play area opposite the cabin is designed for people with various levels of mobility.

We are currently running a Dementia Friendly Get Outdoors project on Fridays. Taster session on Fri. 16 Feb. 2018 to be followed by a 10-week programme from 10.30am to 2pm each Friday. This is designed for people living with dementia and their carers. Activities may include some exploration of the wood, artwork, woodwork, other craft activities and cooking. Each session ends with a shared meal. For further information please contact Simon on 07947772066. The programme is supported by Alzheimer Scotland, Forestry Commission Scotland and DEEP. Recent funding from Tesco Bags for Life will allow us to continue the programme past the summer.
