About us

Our mission is to work alongside young people to support you through your transition to adulthood, unlocking your potential to be resilient, motivated and empowered individuals, able to make positive changes in your lives. We support you to develop a deeper connection to nature, yourself and the wider community through group experiences in the natural world.


The Birch Collective encourage relationships with the natural world based on reciprocity, developing your sense of belonging. Being part of a supportive and inclusive community where difference is acknowledged and celebrated develops self esteem and helps you to recognise and unlock your gifts.
