Learn important life skills in our fully equipped kitchen, through making yummy cakes and delicious pastries, to be shared with the rest of the team to enjoy over afternoon tea!

Donkey Sanctuary

We plan to keep several donkeys on site, which the service users will help to feed and look after.

Their gentle nature has an amazing calming effect and like us humans, love lots of attention and affection.

Animal Care

Help us to look after our wonderful animals by preparing their food, tidying out their houses and preparing their beds for the following night!

They also like lots of attention so make sure you talk to them and give them a stroke as well!

Health Walks

Enjoy our beautiful surroundings by participating in daily health walks through the local area.

The ponies, dogs, and occasionally goats, join us as part of their daily exercise routine.

Pony Agility

Build up a relationship with our ponies by developing skills such as hand/eye co-ordination and learning verbal commands, to lead them through a fun course of exercises and jumps.

Our calendar of activities is carefully planned so that every service user has the chance to participate in a range of programs that will enrich their lives physically, mentally, and socially.
