Activities may include:

  • Animal care

  • Feeding, grooming, cleaning sleeping areas, health care, enrichment, training & general husbandry

  • Caring for our ponies

  • Gardening / horticulture

  • Vegetable growing, growing flowers, hanging baskets, etc.

  • Woodwork / construction

  • Shelter building, fencing, animal enclosures, bird boxes

  • Conservation

  • Researching animal care

  • Providing wildlife habitats, caring for the natural environment, bird/ nature watching

  • Paddock maintenance

  • Grass cutting, fence repair, litter picking and weeding

  • Walking with our friendly wolfdogs or rescue dogs

 

Each individual will be assessed enabling us to provide a programme to meet their needs and promote positive change. There may be times where if it is safe to do so service users will have the opportunity to carry out tasks in small groups or with minimal supervision. We actively encourage independence.
