Children’s well-being is linked to a complex web of factors including the child’s personality, inherent protective mechanisms, family relationships, social capital and economic status. Young carers are particularly at risk from poor mental health outcomes and low well-being. In this study the impact of immersive activities in nature on the well-being of eight young carers (three girls and five boys; aged 9-13 years) was explored. The immersive woodland activities included practical skills such as fire making, cooking and using tools as well as team building and activities to hep build trust. A mixed method, pre-test/post-test approach was undertaken using Emotional Literacy Checklists and interviews, poems and discussion. There were measurable improvements - specifically in motivation and self-awareness - in the young carers’ emotional literacy as reported by the parents and teachers. The well-being indicators that were referenced most frequently by parents and teachers related to the children’s social relationships and their development as individuals. The children reported changed related to social, physical and 'natural connection' well-being.
