Alpacas

Releasing Potential was recently gifted a small herd of alpacas which we keep on a farm in West Sussex.

The benefits of animal assisted interventions for children who struggle to manage their emotions are well known, and spending time with our alpacas is a favourite activity for many of our emotionally vulnerable students.As importantly, the chance of a work experience placement in a farm environment is a valuable option for our students, many of whom find it difficult to cope with change and new people and for whom a standard work experience would be too daunting.

The students have named all the alpacas and each has his own personality; "Mr Chocolate" even has his own Facebook page!
