Trading under the name of Glint, the organisation has worked with approximately 500 people through the medium of equine facilitated learning and personal hypnotherapy, helping people with mental health issues by improving their resilience and reducing social and emotional challenges.
This is achieved through 1:1 programmes with a key focus on communication and confidence building.
Having to relocate due to numerous issues with leases and landlords, the new base means that they are trading from land where there are limitations. There is not a Manege where the horses can be training and most significantly where the Horse Assisted Development can be undertaken. This hinders the amount Glint can offer and the extent of its trade, ultimately, limiting the help it can provide.
With the £30.8k loan and £9.2k grant from Key Fund, it means that Glint can continue and further their work, answering to the high demand of their current waiting list seeking 1:1 coaching.
The business can become financially self-sustainable and create more jobs considering the projection of growth and construction of the Manege.
