Wild Work is a SECAD initiative. SECAD has over twenty years’ experience of successful collaboration with local community and voluntary groups, disadvantaged groups, job seekers, businesses (including private and social enterprise), farmers and schools. We are harnessing this experience and expertise to ensure Wild Work taps into local communities to have a real impact on environmental issues; because increasing people’s awareness, respect and understanding of biodiversity is crucial for inspiring them to care more for the natural world in which we all live.
