Charity information

Hope Pastures

Hope Pastures is a small charity which rescues, rehabilitates and re-homes equines. Based in an area of high deprivation, we also educate in animal welfare and provide contacts opportunities for those who wouldn't normally have the chance to meet these animals. We're a 'community resource', open to the public free of charge every day. We run educational and therapeutic visits for schools, brownies, special needs children, disadvantaged children and support groups, such as MENCAP.

Founded 1974
