PROGRAMME SERVICES, COSTS AND FEES
All programmes are available to volunteers all year round for any start date, and any number of days. Start and finish days are flexible and you do not need to book for full weeks, and other time-frames are available.
Because of this flexibility you can choose cheaper flights or honour other commitments that you may have at home. It also means you will be joining us during a planned week which could fall on a day off, or when we are out shopping, or working in the community etc.
Volunteers will spend an average of 25 hours per week caring for the horses and their environment. Start and finish days are flexible and you do not need to book for full weeks, and other time-frames are available.
Our organisation is small and relies upon donations to be able to support volunteers and carry out our work. The recommended donation for people joining both programmes reflects the amount of time they stay.
We have a sliding scale, so the longer you stay, the cheaper it gets per week! The price of the programme is a donation as we are a registered association, and it will be declared and used as such.
Our organisation will provide accommodation. Food is provided for our Sustainability and Equine Programmes.
Your donation is used for feeding; veterinary and health care; maintenance and improvements of the horses’ living conditions; insurance; and programme support etc; plus will help us complete our mission aims and objectives.
Please read the Practical Info section regarding the sleeping arrangements, and to see what is included in the programme and what is an extra cost.
