The Connecting Steps project is part of the Sheffield Lakeland Landscape Partnership (SLLP) funded by the Heritage Lottery. It aims to introduce people who are not currently accessing the countryside to the west of Sheffield city, by working with existing community groups who work with vulnerable or isolated individuals.
The Sheffield Lakeland area covers approximately 145km2, encompassing 10 reservoirs, moorland, rivers, farmland, villages and 4 Wildlife Trust reserves. It is an outstanding example of a living landscape, rich in history with diverse habitats abundant in wildlife, vibrant communities and strong traditions.
We hope to enthuse, engage, help and support these groups through facilitating visits (via public transport where possible) and including nature-based activities to promote well-being, such as wild art, foraging, photography, mindfulness, flora/fauna ID and visits to SLLP partners, for example Our Cow Molly and Stoneface Creative.
