Sounds Wild

Spending time in nature is great for our bodies and minds

We know that spending time outdoors has a positive impact on our mental health and wellbeing.

We also know that spending time in nature is often difficult to navigate for learning Disabled people with complex support needs.

Sounds Wild combines music and nature to create a natural environment accessible for everyone.

Upcoming Sounds Wild Projects

Sounds Wild sessions take place around the country. In the past, we have visited Brandon Marsh, Westonbirt Arboretum and Colchester Zoo. Stay in touch to hear about opportunities near you.

  • Learning opportunities for parents/carers

Parent Testimonial

“Upon reflecting on the ‘Sounds Wild’ event, I think it was such a success from our perspective, because of the music from start to finish, and being guided by the expertise of the Soundabout team. It was clear that a lot of thought and preparation had gone in to the event and it honestly wouldn’t have been the same experience for (my son) if we had visited Brandon Marsh without Soundabout."

School Testimonial

 "I just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you for today's experience with cedar class - it was absolutely out of this world. It's the first time I've been to one of your sessions and I can honestly say I have never seen our children so engaged, so in awe and so happy. It was so well planned, resourced and you clearly have so much knowledge of supporting children with additional needs - it was genuinely the highlight of our year so far." Oakwood School 2023
