Strength & Learning through Horses

  • SLTH is an equine assisted therapy charity based in North London led by clinical psychologists

  • Provides mental health interventions and alternative education provision for YP struggling with mental health difficulties

  • Many of their YP have disengaged from education and traditional therapies

  • By interacting with horses, YP develop capacities in emotion regulation, perspective-taking, communication and collaboration

  • 12 year track record of achieving positive outcomes for YP when traditional therapy and education services have failed

  • Plan to increase capacity from 500 to 1,000 at their new Barnet site and explore opportunities to expand to other parts of the UK

  • Chimo funding will transform SLTH’s growth prospects by hiring a new Operations Director and new CRM software
