Where a structured programme of education, outdoor education, activities and therapeutic support for each individual child is designed to identify a child's strengths and build on them by creating achievable challenges.

Adventure Care is a specialist Equine Therapy provider to a wide range of services users. We specialize in Equine Assisted growth and learning (EAGAD) which can incorporate psychotherapy.
The horses are used as a tool to work with young people with emotional and behavioural problems. Children receive the experiential learning that comes from working with horses. The children learn a variety of skills that can be transferred into real life situations.
Adventure Care is a registered Independent School that specialises in Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties and as such can enrole children with Statement for Education. Education is considered a priority.
Typically children placed at Hilltop Cottage have missed out on schooling for prolonged periods prior to placement. Education is provided within their home environment by our qualified teaching staff.
Adventure Care uses Outdoor education alongside the therapeutic methods of the staff and the education programme to identify the young people's strengths and help them to reach achievable goals.
Many of these activities are extremely challenging, but are designed to give the young person a sense of achievement and growth.
