Funding For Equine Assisted Psychotherapy

Posted on: Fri 24 August, 2018

Equine therapy can have positive results for people struggling with Depression and Anxiety. Independence Trust have teamed up with The Gloucester Team & HHPDA (Horses Helping People with Depression & Anxiety) and are pleased to say that we've been awarded funding from Gloucester Thriving Communities Fund provided by Gloucestershire County Council.

This award means that individuals who may normally be excluded from accessing Equine Therapy due to the cost, will now have the opportunity to benefit.

The project aims to address some of the key issues raised in the Gloucestershire Community Wellbeing Survey and will support individuals to live independently from services for a longer period of time.
