The Centred Horseplay charity 

What's the challenge?

The Centred Horseplay charity delivers "TheHorseCourse", an innovative, evidence based, horse powered intervention for people with poor thinking and/or emotional skills. They work with young people and also run additional projects for specific adult cohorts, such as Drug & Alcohol Rehabilitation. 8 out of every 10 people Centred Horseplay work with will do better in education or work and in their relationships with peers, family and professionals.

They would love your team to spruce up a barn area so that they can continue to teach courses when the weather is poor. The floor is already covered with suitable material. What it needs now, however,  is for the walls to be 'creatively' painted and an inside boundary innovatively produced with fencing/ kick boards.

Stroud Beresford Group - Women's Refuge

What's the challenge?

Stroud Beresford Women's Refuge offers accommodation and outreach services to women and children who have experienced domestic abuse, helping them to move on from the abuse they have experienced to build a safer, happier future. Photos >


Stroud Beresford Women's Refuge would like you to decorate two rooms of the refuge properties. This would include repainting the ceiling and walls within the playroom and living room. The playroom is an area that is used by all children living in the refuge and plays a pivotal role in helping children to have a safe space in which to play, learn and develop alongside their family. The living space is essential for welcoming new women and children into the refuge and is one of the first spaces they see and where the refuge team undertake the majority of their work with women about the effect of domestic abuse on children.
