Organisation Description

Osprey Outdoors is a people focused organisation. We use the natural environment and outdoor skills to engage people, to help them learn and develop, to gain confidence as an individual and in a team.

We are a local organisation whose aim is to get people into the outside environment, to volunteer, to work and to enjoy it. We are a not-for-profit company and aim to broaden people's horizons, by education on wildlife and natural spaces, giving people new skills by trying new things and by creating an environment and culture of trust so that those with less confidence feel at ease. Working on a variety of projects we enhance our local countryside and natural habitats in and around towns and their communities.
