Nature & Health Practitioners Membership
Supporting you and our community of practice
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
Insurance details and membership discounts (in discussion)
Templates for policies and procedures

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