Roots to Recovery

Roots to Recovery is a new people-led project, which is all about the restorative powers of Pembrokeshire’s amazing outdoors and especially its National Park.

Roots to Recovery is delivered in partnership by Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority and Mind Pembrokeshire and supported through the National Lottery Community Fund until September 2024.

A programme of activities is available from our ‘hubs’ at the Mind Pembrokeshire Resource Centre in Haverfordwest and Pembroke Town Hall. The project includes mentors who support other participants and activities taking place from the hubs.

Our activities are designed to be accessible, fun and sometimes relaxing, with the opportunity to learn new skills and meet new friends. A typical programme might include:

  • Walks (to suit a range of abilities)
  • Arts and crafts with an outdoor theme, with some indoor sessions for when being outdoors isn’t possible
  • Involvement in local projects such as community gardens – making a real difference to people and to nature
  • Volunteering in and around the National Park with other Roots to Recovery participants
  • The opportunity for people to explore the great outdoors on their doorsteps and the amazing National Park that’s not much further afield

You can choose to do as much or as little of what’s on offer, but there are limited spaces available.

If you would like to be involved, either as a volunteer or participant, then get in touch for more information.
