The Seeds of Change Workshops

About this Event

Over the past 14 years The Seeds of Change (TSOC) have been commissioned by more than 400 Teachers, Social Workers, Local Authorities and Parents to deliver the unique TSOC approach using horses to enable young people to begin to turn their lives around.

During that time they have worked with over 3,500 young people dealing with SEMH challenges. But have you ever wondered how it works?

We're hosting a FREE 2 hour Zoom Workshop to anyone interested in learning more about the unique TSOC Approach.

Thursday 1st October 2020 | 10:00-12:00 | Zoom Link


What will you learn?

In this Introduction to the work of The Seeds of Change, Director Katherine Dillon and Head of Curriculum Jemma Fuccillo will cover the following areas:

• History of Equine Facilitated Learning and its use in mental health

• Why horses?

• The Seeds of Change Approach, what they do and why it works

• How lives have been changed using this intervention through live Case Studies

• The post Covid 19 picture - audience participation / discussion

• How they can support children, adults and families in the future

There may be limited time for questions at the end of the webinar.



14 years ago Katherine Dillon and Rachael Frossell established The Seeds of Change because they both believed passionately in improving life chances for young people who through no fault of their own may be struggling to engage in school, due to past life events or trauma.

Using horses Katherine and Rachael have continually developed new and more innovative ways to work with young people living with all kinds of SEMH issues and continue to adapt their programmes to the specific needs of the learner in a tailored provision focused on supporting those in some of the most challenging life situations and with the highest levels of trauma and vulnerability.

Having worked across 5 counties in the South East of England their work continues to grow and develop. In the ever changing social context of gangs, drugs, county lines and exploitation in addition to increasing numbers of young people suffering with mental health issues such as anxiety, self harming, eating disorders and selective mutism to name just a few, they continue to support young people to truly turn their lives around.
