Pets as Therapy
Pets As Therapy is a national charity founded in 1983 by Lesley Scott-Ordish.
We enhance health and wellbeing in the community through the visits of trusted volunteers with their behaviourally assessed animals. We provide a visiting service in hospitals, hospices, nursing and care homes, special needs schools and a variety of other venues all across the UK.
We receive regular visits from the lovely Molly! (below) as well as London and Rollo.
Mindfulness sessions play a key role in our PSHE Programme.
