New Leaf Triangle is a Community Interest Company (cic) - not for profit, that provides a fun, supportive, stress-free, natural learning environment to help children, young people and adults to grow and cope with life’s challenges. We can meet the needs of children and young people with autism and behaviours that challenge, learning difficulties, ADHD and social and emotional difficulties. We are also willing to support people with mental health conditions.

Our mission is to use the natural environment and resources, including animals, to help children, young people and adults to learn and combat the personal challenges that face them in life through fun and intrinsically motivating activities. Each person will have their own individualised learning and development programme that will be designed by a qualified teacher or therapist after talking about and assessing individual need. We can offer nationally recognised qualifications and work skills. Sessions can be provided for groups or individuals and times and days can be flexible.

The key element to what we provide is the right environment for learning, relaxation and fun! We have a range of friendly horses, goats, small animals and Alfie the Labrador. Set in 2 1/2 acres of beautiful Leicestershire rolling countryside, it is a perfect place to relax and chill. A large barn provides plenty of indoor space for fun activities when the weather isn't so good. We also have a ménage providing an all weather surface for working and playing with the horses.

We have created an autism friendly environment, reducing sensory triggers and promoting relaxation. We have tried to create a ‘yes’ environment where children can run, explore and learn . Depending on individual needs, we can set up fun indoor sensory learning environments with soft play, water, sand and small animals as well as outdoor learning areas with a trampoline, swings , sports equipment and camp fire. We will be supporting families, including all siblings, as well as the child with autism. We are trained in Horse Boy Learning and Method. This approach is integrated into our work with the children. We follow the interests of the child and use movement through the use of horses, trampolines and swings to help with sensory integration needs and to produce ‘feel good’ hormones that help the children to relax and become receptive to learning. In holiday periods, we will be holding Horse Boy days and camps for families, with fun activities for the whole family.

Testimonials

We have just got back from my 6 year old boy's session at New Leaf Triangle CIC.... Zain has autism, is non verbal and has quite a few sensory issues. It has been amazing to see how much he enjoyed his time there. I was in disbelief when i saw him climb the horse... he just didn't want to come off! There were lots of other activities that he extremely enjoyed. He even took turns in rolling a ball using tennis racquets which was amazing. Everyone was very welcoming and encouraging and did everything they could to make Zain's time more pleasurable!
