Discover Wellbeing

(Avon)

Discover Wellbeing will support 40 young people affected by mental illness to feel empowered on their journey to improved mental health by giving them the opportunity to learn horse-care while developing a special bond with gentle rescued horses. This has been proven to reduce stress and promote well-being, calmness, concentration, and confidence.

Our goals:

  • Children and young people will have increased confidence, self-esteem, and improved wellbeing
  • Children and young people will be calmer, more focused, and more communicative
  • Children and young people will feel a great sense of achievement and pride and will be supported to achieve their full potential.

How we will achieve our goals

A Community Award would enable children from the most deprived areas who are affected by mental illness and who would otherwise not be able to access the programme to experience the unique benefits of equine assisted healing.

Where the money will go

Through the Discover Wellbeing programme children will gain a sense of responsibility, self-awareness, the ability to control themselves in a new environment and develop strong, positive relationships with people from different backgrounds. They will take these transferable life-skills with them back into their schools, homes and neighbourhoods.

    The Discovery Team achieve amazing results with even the most reluctant young people, extra resources would mean that more young people could be helped to realise the potential and bring out the confidence and pride which is hidden by some complex difficulties.
    Every penny would be used wisely and the investment would be be tangible and measurable.
