About the Project
Furry Tales improves the wellbeing of elders in East London by providing contact with animals and a connection to the local farming community.
We are based at Stepney City Farm and work with residential homes, day care centres, befriending services and individuals to deliver Animal-Assisted Activities in the East End.
We believe that animals offer both physical and emotional comfort and are a great catalyst for social interaction, improved communication and plenty of laughter. By bringing people to the farm and taking the farm to those who may not be able to make it to us we hope to share the immense benefits that nature can have.
