People & Animals AAIC

In 2013 whilst serving as part of a steering group of the Society of Companion Animal Studies, Julie Milsom, Co Founder of Hereford Community Farm met Katie Bristow. Katie shared Julie’s passion for human animal interactions with qualifications and experience in exploring animal welfare and behaviour. Together, Julie and Katie founded People & Animals AAI UK CIC, a forum to deliver collaborative training, seminars and workshops across the sphere of Animal Assisted Interventions in the UK. People & Animals went on to establish Wisbech Community Farm based on the learnings from Hereford Community Farm.  As Director, Katie manages Wisbech Community Farm which is going from strength to strength and the ongoing, shared learning continues to be a huge asset to both Wisbech and Hereford Community Farms.

Green Care Coalition

Green Care Coalition was founded in 2016 with People & Animals AI UK to promote the commissioning and use of Green Care services, and to give voice to the many organisations in the UK who are committed to delivering or supporting the delivery of high quality and cost-effective Green Care services. Katie & Julie are pleased to have been involved from the beginning as founding members.

The Coalition is a voluntary collaboration of organisations who have come together to share knowledge and resources in the belief that

together our voice will be stronger and our actions more powerful.
