There is always a huge demand for animal care volunteering and this project is great one!

This project is designed to give interested students the opportunity to work with rescued horses and donkeys. It is available to anyone with an interest in animal care and requires no experience or prior knowledge, and there is always work to do.

The project will provide a good insight in to animal welfare issues, which may also be helpful to some course modules. The Foundation is very local so transport cost will be minimal and is a rewarding way to give back to the community.

This project is in response to a real need, it is a non-profit organisation that is severely under staffed with a growing number of mouths to feed. The more helpers the merrier!

What will you get from this project?

  • Good physical exercise: volunteers will be on their feet all day doing a range of activities from clearing the fields to grooming the animals.
  • Mental welfare: contact with animals has been proven to help with the many stresses of life including more serious issues such as anxiety and depression.
  • Increase skill base: there will be opportunities to get involved with any fundraising we do and the skills gained at the yard will look good on any CV.
  • Requires no specific knowledge: we want to encourage as diverse a group as possible, there will be plenty of opportunities to learn skills and do different jobs.

This project is open to all students, both Falmouth and Exeter! If you have any questions regarding inclusivity or accessibility, please get in touch!
