What Do We Do


The charity was formed in 1986 and occupies a 7 acre site in Longford, close to the northern perimeter of London Heathrow Airport.

We address the considerable benefits to be had through increased physical activity and contact with animals and plants.

It is possible for people to not only derive considerable proven therapeutic benefit but also to develop skills, get education, get work experience and reach personal targets with a sense of personal achievement in so doing.

The charity welcomes visitors and users from 5 years of age with all types of disability and special needs and provides free services which are not available from local authorities or commercial organisations.
