Volunteering

The Brae could not exist without its volunteers!!!
As well as playing a vital role in the lessons offered to our clients, people of all ages and levels of expertise give freely of their time to assist with the day-to-day running of The Brae. The pictures on this page will hopefully allow you a glimpse of the kinds of things that our volunteers do and if you would like to know more then please contact Emma Bollan, our Volunteer Coordinator, to discuss how you might get involved.

Whether or not you have horse riding/handling experience then we have a need for your help.

We have many volunteers who help with general maintenance around the centre and any DIY skills can be put to good use.
