Core values

People & Animals UK is a Community Interest Company (No. 09738365) providing animal and land-based therapeutic interventions, activities, education and skills development opportunities for children, young people and adults to support and enhance the physical, emotional and social well-being of individuals and the wider community.

Creating opportunities for excluded and vulnerable people to engage, driving social change, supporting coordinated community action in economically marginalised, isolated communities. We utilise the non-threatening appeal of animals and nature-based activities to overcome barriers faced, regardless of physical or learning disability, mental health challenges, age, culture, economic status or background.

From engagement to empowerment we provide stability and strong community connections to enable people to be heard where they have previously not had a voice.

Key outcomes include; raised aspirations, self-esteem, life skill development for improved access to education and employment, improved access to statutory services, improved community cohesion, enhanced identity and opportunities for those most vulnerable, lowered levels of social isolation and social anxiety, change of attitudes towards minority communities, increased sense of community pride, ownership and active citizenship.
