Outdoor healthcare and social prescribing

Our Research

Since 2000 the team at Wye Ventures have been conducting research on the value of outdoor exercise to the health and wellbeing of children and families.

Our mission is to offer innovative solutions to modern families that create meaningful, lasting change in their lives. The intention is to illustrate the groundbreaking research that answers the question: "Why does ROOTS work?"

WHY DOES
IT WORK?

Wye Ventures was initially created to help girls engage in physical activity outside of school, providing them with greater opportunities in an environment they felt comfortable to be in and where they could thrive.

It soon became apparent that achieving this was much more complex than first thought and was relative to a multiple of combined factors, including individual family circumstances, local environment, aspirations, morality, perceptions, conflicts and growth. Today we call this the 'small data'.

We are now proud to present 'Roots Adventure', our ground-breaking programme developed from cutting edge research in outdoor healthcare and social prescribing. Every child is capable, unique and able to make positive choices when they join us today, that will support them in all walks of life in the future.
