Where Wellbeing and Nature Connect

We Be Kids is a registered community interest company. Our main aim is to provide free activities that help people of all ages connect with nature and boost their wellbeing. We are dedicated to removing all barriers that prevent people from accessing the wholesome benefits associated with spending time in nature.

We Be Kids follow a really simple 1,2,3,4,5 model that helps you and your family take positive strides towards boosting your wellbeing. We provide a blend of activities and ideas designed to help you engage with the 5 ways to wellbeing while also connecting with Nature, a combination that will supercharge your wellbeing. You can try the activities at your own pace while enjoying them together as a  family.

Along with our free online activities, we also work with partners across the UK to deliver free in-person events for families to attend. Partners are carefully selected and all activities are delivered in a way that builds connection and boosts wellbeing. We Be Kids also work alongside other organisations to deliver the We Be Kids materials as a way of enhancing their programs.

We Be Kids are a part of the alternative care economy. We don't measure our success in pounds and pence but in love and kindness. Each of our activities and events is an act of kindness from our family to yours. The kindness economy relies on 'kindness transactions' and one simple act can change the world. We are really grateful that you are on this remarkable journey with us.
