We offer day sessions for people with learning difficulties, mental health problems, anxiety, depression, health & wellbeing.

Our day sessions run Monday - Friday 9:30am - 2:30pm.we are located on 14.5 acres. On-site we have alpacas, goats, sheep, pigs, Shetland ponies & Guinea pigs. All our students help with day to day activities, grooming our animals, walking our animals, cleaning our animals & any other tasks needed onsite. Along side the animals we do woodland crafts, arts & crafts, horticultural & land maintenance. Enough for everyone to keep active & most importantly happy.

This is good for wellbeing because

  • Animal interaction. It is proven that animals can reduce stress, anxiety & depression, ease loneliness, encourage exercise & playfulness. Caring for animals can help children grow up more secure & active.

We have had amazing feedback from all parties that take part in our day sessions & have stated it’s their happy place. It has been proven to help them both mentally & physically.
