Dorset Health and Nature Charter

Working together on nature-based health solutions

Dorset Local Nature Partnership has worked with LNPs across the South West, and colleagues from both the environment and health sectors to develop a Health and Nature Charter with the aim of gaining endorsement from Local Nature Partnerships, Health and Wellbeing Boards and individual stakeholder organisations. 

The Health and Nature Charter sets out a set of guiding principles for working together on nature-based health solutions.  

Dorset Local Nature Partnership endorsed the Charter in March 2018 and Dorset Health and Wellbeing Board endorsed the Charter in June 2018.

A list of other partnerships / organisations will be added here as they endorse the Charter.  If your organisation would like to endorse the Charter please contact
