Over the past 14 years The Seeds of Change have been commissioned by more than 400 Teachers, Social Workers, Local Authorities and Parents to deliver the unique The Seeds of Change Approach using horses to enable young people to begin to turn their lives around.

During that time they have worked with over 3500 young people dealing with SEMH challenges. But have you ever wondered how it works?

Back by popular demand, a free online workshop for anyone interested in learning more about the unique The Seeds of Change Approach.

Date: 15 July 2020

Duration: 2 hrs

Start time: 9.30am – 11.30am

Background: 14 years ago Katherine Dillon and Rachael Frossell established The Seeds of Change because they both believed passionately in improving life chances for young people who, through no fault of their own, may be struggling to engage in school, due to past life events or trauma.

Using horses, Katherine and Rachael have continually developed new and more innovative ways to work with young people living with all kinds of SEMH conditions and continue to adapt their programmes to the specific needs of the learner in a tailored provision focused on supporting those with some of the most challenging life situations and highest levels of trauma and vulnerability.

Having worked across five counties in the South East of England their work continues to grow and develop. In the ever changing social context of gangs, drugs, county lines and exploitation, in addition to increasing numbers of young people suffering with mental health issues such as anxiety, self harming, eating disorders and selective mutism, to name just a few, they continue to support young people to truly turn their lives around.
