Lottie’s Yard is a unique animal assisted living and learning experience available to people with learning disabilities in Northampton. Sessions allow people with an interest in animals and the outdoors to work individually and in groups to care for our four miniature shetlands, two horses, 14 guinea pigs and three rabbits on private land. Sessions involve:
  • Yard Safety (Mandatory) 
  • Horse and/or small animal care
  • Land maintenance 
  • Life skills
  • Arts and crafts
  • Therapeutic work
  • Community based projects
Sessions are led by a team of experienced health and social care workers - specialising in special needs. Lottie's Yard is a unique living and learning experience available to people with learning disabilities in Northampton. Using small and large animals, they support people with learning disabilities to set outcome based goals, recognise undiscovered strengths, develop life skills, improve health and wellbeing, produce pride inducing art and crafts, socialise and make new friends and expand their knowledge on animals and outdoor living. They use work books to track peoples progress, which come in alternative formats dependent upon a persons ability and understanding. Lottie belongs to Brie and was raised as a therapy horse by her previous owner. By coincidence or fate, two of Complete Support Care Services Ltd's customers helped to raise Lottie from a foal. During 2020's COVID-19 lockdown, these two customers were were fortunate enough to be able to accompany Brie to a private space at Lottie's yard. As society came out of lockdown, friends of friends of FRIENDS began asking if they could come to Lottie's Yard. Please note that the yard is not yet wheelchair accessible.
