Who provides this?

  • Ponies Help Children


Ponies Help Children rescue ponies and turn their lives around. This is achieved by filling them full of love and predictable routines. The ponies learn to trust again. Once this happens the ponies then work with people of all ages to help build resilience, improve mental health. The charity was founded in 2015 by Mother and Daughter partnership where they worked with 2 – 4 children each week. This has since increased to around 80 now. We have 5 staff and around 30 volunteers.
