Services for Schools
Running Deer supports schools with a range of alternative therapeutic services for young people in Devon who are struggling in the classroom.
Running Deer provides access to training, volunteering, life skills opportunities and work experience in traditional and rural skills, bushcraft and survival skills, woodland management and forestry, and related activities.
The home of Running Deer, Butterdon Wood was part of the Fingle Wood Estate until we purchased it in 2013. As we remove the Larch and replant to native broadleaf trees it will become a community woodland for everyone to enjoy.
Running Deer is a not for profit, charitable organisation! We rely on grants, sponsorship and your help in the form of donations…as well as generating our own income from the services we provide. Find out how you can help.
