Wild Child aims to reconnect children and their families with the landscape of the South West Peak and areas further afield through encouraging exploration and playing outside. Being immersed in the outdoors at a young age will help to create positive experiences and an appreciation for natural heritage and landscapes.
The South West Peak Landscape Partnership is working in with the Staffordshire Wildlife Trust to encourage children and their families to get a bit wilder in a variety of ways. To find out how to get your family or school to go wild use check out the tabs below.
Over the course of the project we will also offer training days for parents and volunteers to enjoy and see what we have on offer.

Free play in outdoor green spaces for very young children improves their ability to deal with stress and focus attention, as well as improving social skills.
Increasing access to, and use of, good quality natural environments can help improve health.
