Wild Work & Wellbeing Days

Wild Work & Wellbeing Days

Supporting employees, nature and local communities

We can offer a unique nature-based proposition for business away days, team building, supporting employee wellbeing and for fulfilling corporate social responsibility commitments.

Plan your team get together at a venue that's a little less ordinary.

Give your staff members the chance to spend a day surrounded by nature, whilst discovering new ways to look after their health and wellbeing. 

"We understand the value of investing in our employees’ wellbeing and working with The Wildlife Trusts has been the perfect way to do this while contributing to restoring our natural world."

Carl Ennis, CEO
Siemens UK

Wild Work Days

Businesses of all sizes can join us for a wild work day.

Escape the office, don your boots and coats and breathe in the fresh air. Help us to manage our reserves, maybe spend the day putting fences or hedgerows in, cleaning up a beach, creating a new pond or planting reeds in our new reedbed at Rainton Meadows.

We can team a Wild Work Day with use of one of our meeting rooms and a great breakfast or lunch spread from our onsite coffee shops so your team can really make the most of doing something different.

What can we do?

Volunteering tasks vary according to the seasons and weather, but could include; painting bird hides, maintaining ditches and ponds, fixing fencing, beach cleans, ragwork, grass cutting, hedge laying, tree planting, woodland management, coppicing or path management.

We can accommodate set dates that you have in mind or we can suggest dates to suit your availability.

We provide a dedicated member of staff and training to support you throughout the day and we provide lunch and refreshments.

How do we sign up? 

In order to ensure we can maintain and sustain our work, there are some costs associated for companies with volunteering of this nature.

We have various corporate volunteering packages to suit your needs. To discuss available options please ring Zoe on 0191 584 3112 or email zhull@durhamwt.co.uk

Wild Wellbeing Days

If you feel that your team might benefit from simply spending some time in nature then one of our wild wellbeing days is the perfect activity.

A walk, birdwatching, pony experience or wild yoga session followed by lunch and some meditation could be the perfect remedy to getting the work-life balance just right.
