Event description

Description

Wellies-On Community Interest Company (CIC) is a not for profit Care Farm. We use the everyday running of our mixed livestock farm as a vessel through which we can deliver transferable life skills and resilience. We believe in bringing together care of the land and animals with care of the people for mutual healing. Interactions with animals have been shown to improve health and wellbeing, especially in terms of mood and socialisation.

Come and join us for our Showcase Event!

We are holding a Showcase event here at Wellies-On to inform professionals about the services that we have to offer. During the morning we will have speakers from a range of organisations that will talk about how spending time at Wellies-On has benefitted their service users. The talks will be followed by a tour of the farm allowing you to see for yourselves the different services on offer. A buffet lunch will be provided, during the lunch break our team will be on hand to chat. During the afternoon we will be running a selection of workshops and demonstrations aimed at giving you a greater insight into how Care Farming and Equine Assisted Psychotherapy can benefit specific groups.
