Connecting Actively to Nature (CAN)
These sessions are part of the Connecting Actively to Nature project.
This flagship initiative from the Devon Local Nature Partnership is tackling inactivity amongst people over the age of 55 in Devon. Working wide range of local health, conservation, wildlife and activity partners the programme, entitled Connecting Actively to Nature (CAN) will help people to develop the confidence to enjoy the beautiful natural surroundings on their doorstep.
(CAN) is funded by Sport England through Lottery sales and is tackling the growing problem of activity drop-off in the crucial retirement transition period and beyond. As an active CAN partner we will be setting up and running some exciting local activities that tackle social isolation and help people to get active in inclusive, supportive surroundings. Helping people to come along and get the most out of these activities will be our special CAN volunteers and we’re actively recruiting right now. There are lots of practical training sessions on offer and a really supportive community of over 350 other CAN volunteers. Would you like to join us? We’d like to hear from you if you think you have something to offer. For more information go to our volunteering page
