Work well with nature

The work well with nature programme is delivered by the Shropshire Wildlife Trust and funded by Telford and Wrekin Council. It offers line managers, HR managers, OH/H&S managers and employers, programmes to help proactively improve the health and wellbeing of their employees, reduce absence, and support return to work plans achieved through practical nature-based outdoor activities.

"Absence is still a significant drain on  British businesses....forward-looking companies will invest in health and well-being services to tackle the issue before absence starts to hit their bottom lines."  Jon Andrews,  HR Consulting Lead at PwC (PwC, 2013)


Work well with nature assists employees living and/or working in the Telford and Wrekin area.  Employee engagement activities will include:

  • practical conservation activities for instance habitat creation
  • conservation projects at local and national nature reserves
  • community group activities across Telford such as the creation of gardens at local schools or sheltered housing
  • practical activities such as meadow and woodland management. 

The 4 stages of work well with nature:

1.  Business identifies employee(s) and the line manager/HR/OH contacts Shropshire Wildlife Trust (SWT)

2.  SWT contacts employee(s)

3.  Practical activities identified & attended

4.  SWT report back to business

No practical experience is required prior to attending.
