Landscape Partnership Inspires and Enables Children and Young People to Benefit from Being Outdoors in the South West Peak

Launched in 2017, the South West Peak Landscape Partnership is a group of organisations working together and with volunteers to restore, protect, and improve the landscape of the South West Peak area.

With the Peak District National Park as lead partner and the support of the National Lottery Heritage Fund this 5-year partnership (with benefits reaching far beyond that time) works with local communities to build stronger connections with the landscape and with each other.

What are we trying to achieve?

I’ve been lucky enough to take some R&R over the summer, spend time with my family and do a bit of reading, both fiction and non. It’s brought me back to work feeling a mixture of enthusiasm for the post-Covid possibilities and unease with the business as usual inertia that is so hard to shift, in ourselves and others. I’ve kept my blogs pretty practical over the last year, so, amongst the day to day and the ever evolving VCSE picture, I’m going to try and use my next few blogs to articulate some of the bigger picture thinking I’m grasping to hold onto after my holidays!
