Young people love outdoor construction, from setting up a tree swing or sign posts to building benches and dens. Involving local young people in transforming a disused space with some built elements connects them to the space and makes it more attractive for future use by the local community. Social spaces are created by local young people and become centres for community cohesion.

We work with experts in natural outdoor construction to work alongside groups of young people, teaching them to use tools safely and effectively. They develop basic construction knowledge, skills and confidence in their abilities.
