Our mission is to:

'Provide positive change in the lives of all regardless of age, sex, gender, race, ability, vulnerability and especially those who are disadvantaged and isolated'.

The aim of Thanet Community Forest School CIO is to

provide a relaxed and supportive environment, where

people young and old, with varying degrees of ability. can

experience all aspects of forest school and outdoor

learning at a pace which is suitable for them. 








The Thanet Community Forest School was registered

as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation in 2017 and

permanently based in Dane Valley Woods and an adjacent

allotment. We are transforming 5.5 acres of bramble

 into a woodland area for the local community to use.

During 2020 -2021 we will be planting 500 new trees on

site though the Isle of Thanet Trees and Woods
