The Cart Shed charity transforms lives. They work with adults and young people experiencing mental health difficulties or with those who have emotional imbalances in their lives.
Based within the parish of Norton Canon, they use enriching and engaging woodland activities such as woodcraft and coppice craft as well as horticulture to empower and self-manage both mental and physical health in a sustainable way. Sessions are run by tutors, occupational therapists and mental health practitioners to help build confidence, identify barriers to skills development and explore other issues that might be making life challenging.
In 2017 the Charity was awarded the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.
