    About the host organisation

    Hosted by: Noah's ART
    Organisation Profile:

    Noah's ART is a not for profit social enterprise. We are passionate about reducing social isolation by enhancing opportunities to develop the human animal bonds. We believe contact with animals provides safe space to meet new friends, learn new skills and feel a part of something.

    We aim through commercial enterprise to offer volunteer and work placements to people who are often overlooked e.g. from Community Mental Health Teams, Rehab Services and Pupil referral unit.

    We offer a visiting service in NHS and Care Homes, inviting participants to attend our base in Dukinfield as part of the recovery journey. We also support training for those who may need additional help e.g. animal welfare, practical experience and handling. We offer training for care professional raising awareness of service we offer.
