Working with Sustain

We run conservation days in the woodland at Tortworth with the help of a fantastic organisation called Sustain.

‘The Sustain Project, an ongoing partnership between Volunteer Bristol and Bristol Drugs Project, are grateful for the therapeutic volunteering opportunities made available to our service users by Tortworth Forest Centre.

The importance of being able to access the tranquillity of a woodland, with the sociability of group practical activities, cannot be underestimated for individuals who are recovering from drug and alcohol problems. Further, Tortworth Forest Centre’s commitment to enabling access through free transport, shared lunch and a Volunteer Co-ordinator means that our Advisors can be confident in referring over those for whom this volunteer opportunity can most benefit.’
