About us

Get INTUNE was initially set up in 2007, as an outdoor resource project for groups of young people who were; at risk, not in education, training or employment and those with complex needs; including challenging behaviour.  

 The concept  of  'Get Informal Niche Training Utilising Nature's Environment' was developed and introduced as an educational solution to help re-engage individuals towards a self directed change. 

Picture the contrast of nature, open fields, sheltered woodland, seasonal changes, the ideal place to get back in tune with self and others. Based on farmland at Hinton Marsh Farm, Bourton, Swindon, on the Wiltshire & Oxfordshire border, in an area of natural beauty with open countryside views of the Ridgeway sets the scene for a 'back to basics' experience and approach, which  utilises the natural environment as a unique tool and stage in assisting individuals to 'face up to' challenges and address specific issues preventing them from moving forward with their lives.

In my experience of leading diverse groups of young people on outdoor educational team based activities, I found, that there was a genuine need for individuals to experience more than just the pursuits of outdoor adventure, but to experience and embrace the real immediate and longer term benefits, of working in and with the natural environment, with it's theraputic offering to discover, learn and develop new ways of 'thinking and doing' to initiate change; encourage healthier lifestyles/relationships, positive attitudes to learning and workable strategies for overcomming barriers.  

 

Get INTUNE assists groups of young people on a journey of discovery through practical woodland tasks and Art 'using nature's evironment' with Community Artists No Added Sugar, team development activities, one to one mentoring, evidence based group work programmes on 'social skills development', all of which compliments and adds value to formal education linking with National Curriculum, PSHE/Citizenship and Personal Learning and Thinking Skills.  Working partnerships are  with key professionals in education, health and social care with referrals from Social Services, Youth Offending Service and Pupil Referal Units.  The project is a great success and receives positive feedback from both participants and their key workers, as many participants have progressed into areas of education, training and employment with raised self esteem, improved emotional well being, motivation and confidence. 

 

Building on from the programmes past success Get INTUNE  is an independent provider of niche development training and educational solutions offering year round provision of enrichment opportunities, carefully tailored to meet the needs of individuals and groups within our community; youth groups, schools, colleges, families and corporates.  We welcome enquiries from organisations and agencies that share and support our key objectives; enhancing young people's skills and abilities to implement change in their lives.   If you have a group which you feel would benefit from our programme or courses then please do not hestitate contact us to  Get INTUNE.
