Welcome

The NHS Forest is a project coordinated by the charity, the Centre for Sustainable Healthcare. Funded by charitable trusts, corporate and individual sponsorship, the project’s central aims are to:

  • improve the health and wellbeing of staff, patients and communities through increasing access to green space on or near to NHS land
  • encourage greater social cohesion between NHS sites and the local communities around them
  • spark projects that bring together professionals and volunteers to use new and existing woodland for art, food crops, reflective or exercise spaces and to encourage biodiversity
  • highlight innovative ideas to encourage the use of green space for therapeutic purposes
