Our Community Work

Find out more below about all the different types of opportunities that we offer to those in our local community.


Our Chance2Be programme is aimed at children and young people who need a little extra support to cope with life's ups and downs.

Young People's Support Sessions

Our small group or 1-2-1 sessions are aimed at young people who need a little more support than most and involve working with our horses in a therapeutic environment.

Community visits

We welcome members of the community at the Sanctuary to meet our horses and can tailor visits according to your needs. 

Open Sundays

Come and meet our horses and team at one of our Open Sundays.

AQA Unit Award Scheme

We are delighted to offer AQA Unit Award Certificates as part of our community work.

Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme

If you are working towards your bronze, silver or gold award, you can complete your volunteering or skills element with us at the Sanctuary.

Presentations and Talks

If you are a member of a group and would like a presentation or talk from one of our team, we would love to hear from you.

Work experience placements

If you are a university or college student who is required to complete animal-based work experience placements as part of your course, we would be delighted to discuss them with you.


We take our responsibility for safeguarding very seriously at Mane Chance and have a comprehensive safeguarding and child protection policy.
