This is a very popular activity with our service users who find the atmosphere tranquil and calming. We keep lots of animals including goats, pigs, chickens, rabbits and guinea pigs. Service users help with the feeding, welfare and even the ‘mucking out’, providing a great opportunity to get to know our animals.
There is a variety of activities to suit all abilities and preferences.
All our activities are supported by specialist knowledge and techniques for helping people with Autism and a variety of communication systems.
Service users can work alongside the animals at their own pace, either going inside the paddocks to feed and `muck out` or sit outside the paddocks. We have benches situated around the land which allows service users to be involved in the animal husbandry department but at their own pace. Building on individual’s confidence and self esteem.
