Sponsor AMURT NW
AMURT NW works in some of Liverpool's most deprived neighbourhoods where rates of child poverty are at their highest. Their Animal Assisted Therapy programme will give 480 children from disadvantaged families the opportunity to work with ponies and experience some of the benefits of Animal Assisted Therapy. Animal Assisted Therapy can improve mental health and tackle feelings of isolation. It teaches children empathy, patience, responsibility, self worth, social skills and confidence.
