People & Animals’ mission is to enable all individuals to live healthy, independent lives, enhancing physical, emotional and social well-being to improve peoples’ life chances, and offer opportunities for the wider community to reconnect, become more resilient, with a ripple effect of raised aspirations across generations.


We work in a collaborative way, and are dedicated to promoting therapeutic interaction between people, animals and the natural environment. Our core values are:


  • Creating opportunities for excluded and vulnerable people in our rural community to engage in and celebrate our cultural assets
  • Supporting local Health and Wellbeing initiatives to combat loneliness and isolation.
  • Supporting coordinated community action in economically marginalised and isolated communities, driving social change through asset-based community development
