Future Roots offers the opportunity for people to utilise a rural environment to enhance their well being and to reach their potential. We use a Resilience Model to structure practical activities which have proven to be effective in ensuring progression. We cater for all ages 8 to over a hundred and programmes are designed to engage people who are hardest to reach.
