Animal Assisted Therapy Assistant

Beatriz started volunteering with us last year and loved the amazing work that we do and ethos of the community interest. She has her own little girl who is 3yrs old and is passionate about getting back to work. She has completed her Animal Therapy Qualification and passed with flying colours. She will often assist Rhianna at many of our visits. She has learnt so much about the animals and their care and is always helping out with the jobs at the yard. She is out in all weathers poo picking our fields, an essential job to maintain the animals health. Our job is not always glamourous. She is currently doing a cache level 2 in Autism to broaden her knowledge and understanding of some of the individuals we work with. Her aim is to be able to work with some of the young people on a 1-1 basis in the future.
