The Wellies Project

Welcome to the Wellies Project

Therapeutic learning activities with animals, plants, creativity and the countryside for people recovering from mental ill health.

WELLIES stands for: 








“I am so passionate about Wellies, the project has helped me to progress and grow as a person, I no longer sit at home unable to leave the house feeling depressed and anxious. I have learned to socialise with others, learnt new skills. I am the old me that I used to be. I do not know where I would be without this project “
