Hopton Rehab & Homing Centre (HRH) was established in July 2017. 

About our work:

  • Over the past 4 years, whilst running a separate training organisation in work-based horsecare, Tracy and Lin accumulated a variety of equines that needed extensive rehabilitation; both physically and mentally; for a multitude of reasons.
  • The volume arriving at the centre increased significantly and it became no longer possible to continue to privately fund the scheme; hence the creation of HRH.
  • We have built a great reputation for our sympathetic approach which allows the horses to adjust and develop before moving on to new vocations.
  • Once a horse is ready to move on it is carefully matched with a prospective new home to ensure a happy outcome.

Horses come to us for many different reasons be they financial, owners having a change in circumstances, horses unsuitable for current owner or simply an older equine looking for a quieter life.  At HRH we believe in giving all equines a second chance and we work with them closely to enable them to find a new life with a new carer/owner.

The rehoming process involves visits to new homes before and after a horse is relocated. It is therefore not possible to extend the rehoming process outside of a two and a half hour driving radius of the centre which is based near Tenbury Wells in Worcestershire.

Bardet-Biedl Syndrome UK is the only registered charity supporting people with Bardet-Biedl Syndrome, their families and carers. The aims of the Charity, according to its constitution, are: to preserve and protect the health and promote the welfare of persons living with BBS, and to advance the education of the medical and educational professionals and the general public on the subject of BBS.

For information regarding the clinical features of BBS, click here for our information booklets

All members of the Management Committee are volunteers. They have children with BBS or have the syndrome themselves, and they willingly give up their time to provide support, raise funds and generally do as much as they can to keep the Charity moving forwards.

 

The Charity produces newsletters,  conference reports, holds an annual family conference, and is an integral member of the specially commissioned multi-disciplinary BBS Clinics. Awareness of the Syndrome has grown massively as a result and the Charity now supports over 500 families and communicates with over 130 professionals involved in their care.

 

There are no membership fees and no charges are made for information – the work of the Charity relies entirely on donations.

Text relay: 18001 01844 348100 (for deaf & hard of hearing)

Address: The Grange, Wycombe Road, Saunderton, Princes Risborough, Buckinghamshire HP279NS

We train hearing dogs that help deaf people to leave loneliness behind. We train dogs to alert deaf people to sounds they would otherwise miss – simple sounds that many people take for granted like the doorbell, alarm clock and even danger signals like the fire alarm. Being aware of these – thanks to a hearing dog – makes a real difference to deaf people’s lives. 

Hearing dogs have saved countless lives in their important role; fire alarms sounding at the dead of night, alerting them to the shouts of a loved one who is in peril, even saving their recipients from potential car thieves!
