Greatwood is the only organisation that uses former racehorses to educate disadvantaged children and young adults with Special Educational Needs (SEN).
Greatwood has piloted a new suite of educational programmes in 2018. H.O.P.E™ focuses on addressing the effects of trauma (including PTSD), aiming to promote Post-Traumatic Growth and personal development. The courses are for, but not limited to, serving and former armed services personnel, reservists, emergency services workers and their families.
The inclusive, interactive and learner focused environment at Greatwood is used as a vehicle for self-development and progression. By utilising Thoroughbred horses, a range of other animals as well as our sensory and vegetable gardens, we work together to support a wide range of personalised targets. These include improved self-esteem, psychological wellbeing and communication skills; in addition to qualifications and experiences that support career transition and instil a belief in a positive future.
