Animal based work

Animal based reparation

 

Animal based work is an area we hope to develop further over the next few years. At present some of the actitivites involve training, socializing, and cleaning up after dogs. There are also mucking out and husbandry chores around chickens, goats, cows, ducks, geese, sheep and horses.

In some cases working with animals can be very theraputic, reducing stress and anxiety. Working in this environment not only helps support charities to take care of abandoned and mistreated animals, but  again can help develop key skills for  young people involved in theses activities. By reducing anxiety and stress levels, the environment can promote a caring and nurturing environment.  When completing this type of Reaparation activitiy young people can take responsibility for care of an animal, develop social skills and  increase self-esteem & motivation.  This activity can also lead to the developement of an intrested which could be futher developed at college.
