Fossil Creek Farm Trust offers unique respite facilities including qualified therapists, 100 acres and 150 animals and provides wellbeing wānanga for rangatahi, wahine and tane. The Farm has been created as a safe space and healing sanctuary for tangata whenua, and to restore the native whenua, flora and fauna. Equine, nature and animal therapy are integrated into this experience with a focus on preventing suicide and assisting to support people. They also take people who are actively suicidal and have nowhere else to go. They wrap services around these people and are committed to continue to offer support for as long as it is needed.
