Our aim is to promote physical and mental wellbeing through the therapeutic benefits of interacting with animals and engaging in creative activities. Our nurse-led team is trained to provide a safe and supportive environment for individuals of all ages and abilities.

We bring a variety of animals on our outreach visits. Interacting with animals has been shown to reduce stress, lower blood pressure, and improve overall mood and wellbeing.

We also provide art and craft activities that encourage self-expression and creativity. These activities can help individuals relax, improve cognitive function, and boost self-esteem. We will provide all the necessary materials and guidance to ensure everyone can participate and enjoy the experience.

Our visits can be tailored to the specific needs and interests of the group we are visiting. Whether it’s a one-off visit or a regular program, we will work closely with the staff and organisations to create a program that meets the goals and preferences of the participants, whether we are working with clients with mental health problems, social anxiety, depression or mobility issues.

Engaging in artistic activities has been proven to reduce anxiety, improve focus, and enhance problem-solving skills. These sessions provide a fun and relaxing outlet for employees to explore their creative side and relieve stress.

Our nurse-led health education and promotion service is designed to address various health topics that are relevant to employees. We provide information on menopause awareness, weight management, smoking cessation, alcohol advice and much more.
