Meet The Team


Jackie Simpson – Founder & Project Leader

I’m Jackie and I founded OutLET: Play Resource in 2016 after seeing first hand the benefits that playing outdoors had on child development and well being.

I strongly believe that every child should have access to the types of education that meet their needs and outdoor learning provides a sensory rich, child centered environment which can support young people to thrive.

 I am a Forest School Leader and a Therapeutic Forest Approved Provider.

Prior to joining the team  here I was a Countryside Ranger and loved passing on my knowledge to others. Although the more i learn myself the more I realise that there is just SO much more to learn.

Delivering training is a passion of mine. I love meeting others as they start their journey and then keeping in touch with them as their skills grow and develop.
