Animal Assisted Therapy Noah's ART
Noah's ART provides an alternative to talking therapies - we support beneficiaries to spent time with our animals in 1:1 therapy rooms. These sessions are perfect for anyone struggling with low mood or anxiety. We accept self referrals, EHCPs and other payment plans. Sessions cost £30 and are bookable online. There is no age restrictions and we support people with a range of conditions.
We operate a referral system but you can self refer into any of our projects. Fill in the referral form on the website and return to firstname.lastname@example.org. Someone will the call you and let you know about the services we offer.
We have a dog cafe on Friday 10-12 - meet our friendly dogs - sorry you cant bring your own dogs but you could apply to be a dog buddy if you have a friendly dog. Call us to find out about the assessment process.
We also run monthly art workshops on Saturday 10-12 - this is from 14y upward - just £5 for the two hours - different projects are offered throughout the year
And we have funding to offer free training courses on animal welfare. Level 1 is for anyone feeling anxious about getting back into training and is very hands-on with animals. Level 2 is animal welfare in much more depth, 5 hours and up to 10 students and level 3 lets you into the secrets of pet therapy and explores other employment opportunities working with animals.
We also offer school visits at £165 and care home and hospital visits at £135
