    Myplace Locations

    Myplace is funded by the Big Lottery through 'Our Bright Future' and the European Social Fund. Lancashire Wildlife Trust in partnership with Lancashire Care Foundation Trust is helping people gain confidence, improve their wellbeing and gain new skills. We work with ages 13+.

    The Myplace programme is delivered at 13 locations or across Preston, Chorley, East and West Lancashire.

    We use an ecotherapy approach which involves five themes: conservation, growing projects, mindful environments, bushcraft and nature walks.

    Please note: attendance is by referral only, get in touch for further details.
