Ffion Farnell, Tir Coed Chief Executive Officer said: “Over the past 20 years of engaging people with woodlands, we’ve seen thousands of people develop their skills and increase wellbeing, supporting many to turn their lives around. It’s great to be recognised for the valuable work we do in rural communities.”
Tir Coed engages people with woodlands in rural Wales through volunteering, accredited training and bespoke activities. Tir Coed runs various projects and works in partnership with many organisations to offer accredited courses, health & wellbeing programmes, progression opportunities, educational sessions and research projects.
