We believe everyone has the right to green spaces.
The Bradford Urban Discovery (BUD) project aims to support urban communities in Bradford, providing residents with accessible and local natural areas.
The project covers seven green spaces in south west Bradford. Through the project we aim to:
- improve footpaths, entrance ways and habitats
- get more people outdoors and active
- provide an accessible, community space for natural play, discovery and exploration for families, children and young people in the area
Working in partnership with Bradford Council’s Countryside and Rights of Way team, the BUD project is delivering:
- regular volunteering days on the green spaces to empower local communities and support people to gain conservation and land management skills
- nature play sessions for families children and young people to get outdoors, be active and build their knowledge and connection to the natural environment
- sessions for local schools and community groups to support them to use the green spaces

How you can help
There are opportunities to volunteer on all of the BUD project greenspaces, learn new skills, meet people, find out about urban wildlife and be involved in the transformation of these spaces into vibrant community assets.
We are also looking for volunteers to help us with play sessions after school, in school holidays and to help us run events, so if you have a background in working with children and young people and want to help then get in touch.
The project is funded by BIG Lottery Reaching Communities Fund and by Bradford Council’s Countryside and Rights of Way team.
