To create opportunities that will allow all volunteers to progress, enable them to grow in confidence, become more resilient and acquire good life skills whilst in a safe and inclusive environment.
Stepney Bank Stables is committed to making horses accessible to the whole community. By actively promoting progress we aim to raise aspirations, boost self esteem and develop skills which allow all of our volunteers to realise their potential.
We believe that every young person involved in our project has the potential to achieve success and flourish. We value diversity and celebrate individuality in our young people and we have found that with a consistent, fair and positive approach, our service users can learn self-discipline, responsibility, co-operation and problem solving skills which not only will improve their confidence and self worth but also their employability.
Stepney Bank Stables is approved by the British Horse Society and the Association of British Riding Schools. We are also a Pony Club Centre. This means that we have passed rigorous checks to ensure that our horses, facilities and equipment are fit for purpose and that our staff are appropriately qualified and skilled.
Stepney Bank Stables was honoured by ‘Her Majesty The Queen’ with the Queen’s Golden Jubilee Award 2003. We have also been awarded Investing in Children Membership as a result of our continued commitment to involving young people in the planning and delivery of our work and were winners at the Charity Awards receiving a Judges Commendation for our work with children and young people in 2014.
