Project leader for Nature Nurture Project. We work with children from the poorest areas of Aberdeen, who experience the trauma and anxiety of family life with substance misuse, alcohol abuse, domestic violence and/or homelessness.

Where can we find more info on the Internet about Nature Nurture. No pressure of course, but my goodness it would be useful to have a place to direct people to, be it a Facebook page, blog or website - Spanglefish do free ones!
Hope you've had a lovely Sunday!
Big hug - good to see you yesterday
Hi Terri, where can I found more information about your Project? Well, as I work in a social inclusion through outdoor activities to children and youngsters at risk in Brazil, I am very happy to know more people working in this area. Yours, Rodrigo.
So glad to have you join us here, with Juliet and any others you might notify. The Children and Nature Network is just beginning to connect with professionals working with at risk children. We have some pediatricians, social workers, psychologists and at least one child psychiatrist that I know of. I hope you can share your stories on this site, both successes and challenges, to inform others and get input from them. We don't want names or specifics necessarily to protect privacy and confidentiality, but general circumstances that might be informative for everyone, particularly activities that work for the betterment of the health and well being of children. Thanks again for joining Juliet. I look forward to watching the conversations. John
