Dedham Therapy Farm covers 14 acres and houses many farm animals which are used in our animal therapy programmes.
The Farm currently offers individual or group animal therapy to service users with Autism, anxiety, learning disabilities, low self-esteem and lack of confidence and other challenges.
Service users help with the daily running of the farm, giving those who access the Farm the ability to be a key part of our project’s growth and development.
Animal-assisted therapy (AAT) promotes mental, physical and social well-being. The human-animal bond allows strong connections to grow and develop, with animals offering unconditional acceptance and affection.
