How to contact this service


The Seeds of Change is an alternative provision that uses horses to deliver therapeutic and academic courses in outdoor environments. They work with children, young people, and adults (aged 5+) who want to achieve their potential and improve their life chances in school or the workplace.

The Seeds of Change is for:

  • Young people who are disengaged from mainstream education and require an intervention that supports them to overcome barriers to their learning.
  • Anyone with low aspirations or low self-esteem.
  • Anyone who has encountered serious emotional or physical trauma, social deprivation, bereavement, or domestic violence.
  • Young people with conditions such as selective mutism, self-harm, eating disorders, drug or alcohol abuse, addictions, offending behaviour, mental health problems, anxiety disorders, and autism / ASD.

The Seeds of Change offer structured sessions that are learner-led and focus on specific pre-agreed outcomes. They provide one-to-one interventions, and City & Guilds qualifications in Land Based Services, Employability Skills, Functional Skills in English, and Functional Skills in Maths.
