We couldn't work without the support of the following organisations. We are a traded service meaning that we are not for profit and charge places at cost. As a result the support of these organisations help us keen the doors open and helping people from across the south west.

Coopers Associates 

Coopers Associates are a financial services company based in Taunton who offer mortgage, wealth management and accountancy advice. They have generously given us their help as a funding partner via The Cooper Associates Foundation to offer support to young people in the Taunton and Wellington area through our Student Support Scheme. The scheme makes Otterhead Forest School accessible for young people who do not have EHCPs or additional funding.

MIndfulness UK

MindfulnessUK kindly donated funds to rebuild our composting toilets, making them more accessible and usable. 

MindfulnessUK is a leading mindfulness and compassion training organisation, teaching accredited courses online. Karen and the team have supported Joe through the Integrating Mindfulness and Compassion Qualification which is having a positive impact across the whole staff team.
