Next In person Meeting

21st March 2024

At Nature & Health Practice Network (NHP) we know there are multiple, evidenced, holistic benefits for people's health  when individuals and groups are facilitated, professionally, in natural settings.

NHP is about connecting people to nature for their health and wellbeing.  Through  this nature connectedness pro-environmental behaviours are encouraged and therefore greater care & support  for the natural world can emerge. 


We have formed a practice network for Green Care, Nature Health and Wellbeing, Eco Therapy and other nature based approaches. This network can be a voice, advocate and professional body for the developing sector

This network will:

  • Establish some of the key standards and quality assurance needed for partners, funders, commissioners, participants and practitioners to feel that they are offering a safe, effective and professional service. 

  • Be a place that supports and encourages practitioners to deliver this best possible service to their communities. 

Our membership area is here to help you throughout your career, over the next few months we will be adding all of the following features.


Membership will include:

  • Access to other experts in the field

  • A set of agreed standards developed through consultancy with the members

  • Networking opportunities

  • Access to a forum for discussions and sharing ideas

  • Insurance details and membership discounts (in discussion)

  • Templates for policies and procedures

  • Risk Assessment guidance and templates

  • Examples for funding and funding guidance

Join us  to help us raise standards across the field and promote health and wellbeing through nature connection.
