We have some fantastic news to share with you. Hugs has successfully been chosen to receive a grant from Cornwall’s Social Enterprise Fund administered through the awesome Cornwall Community Foundation!

For those of you that follow Hugs regularly, you will know how hard our small, dedicated team have been working through the pandemic. Due to being unable to run on-site well-being interventions, our youth team have been helping our horse rescue team, who have been incredibly busy with rescues and rehoming. With lockdown restrictions lifted, we have been able to re-open for our on-site interventions. This has meant these staff members are back to working full time on our well-being projects, due to the demand for our services, leaving a very depleted team on the yard.

The funding will employ a full time Animal Welfare Assistant to enable the youth team to help more people in need and to help meet demand for our animal rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming side. This will also help our charity recover from the financial impact of the pandemic and enable us to grow to meet demand in the community. Thank you so much CCF and the incredible team there, your support for Cornish charities is just fantastic, just look at the difference you’re making! 🥰
