Sam is 17 and has Down’s Syndrome and is also on the autistic spectrum. Summer holidays have proved to be difficult in the past with Sam becoming increasingly more insular and unwilling to leave the family home.
We accessed Horses for Causes for the first time this year and it has been a godsend. Sam is keen to get ready and will leave the house happily. He loves interacting with the horses. Sharon seems to have the knack of communicating with Sam on a level that he understands. For the first time Sam has spoken to his dad and brothers about something he has done without them. As this is clearly benefitting Sam we hope to be able to continue attending sessions when the holidays have finished.
Community Action Partnership
I would like to express my support for Horses For Causes in relation to the invaluable work they do to support vulnerable young people and adults with complex needs.
For the time I have been working with the organisation, Horses For Causes have been professional and supportive of being active within the local community, whilst involving volunteers to both strengthen the organisation the clients and partners whom they work with.
They have also been proactive in securing funding from the Blaby District Community grants scheme in 2011 that enabled Horses for Causes to run a pilot scheme to raise the awareness of health benefits (physical and mental) of equine activity.
Community Action Partnership run a Youth Volunteer project and Horses for Causes have been supportive with this providing volunteering opportunities for local sixth form students to enhance their learning and life skills, alongside their academic studies.
I wish Horses For Causes all the best in the future and look forward to continued partnership to support vulnerable residents and their communities.
My daughter had her 1st session today and it was just amazing!!
The staff were so lovely and put my daughter at ease immediately, she can’t wait for next week now!
