Eiffage Foundation: horse-riding helping to integrate young people in the north of France

Adapt Equit is a social and therapeutic riding centre that welcomes vulnerable people from diverse backgrounds, including young offenders and children in care, to encourage them back into education or into training. It is continuing to work with offenders in the north of France, with support from the Eiffage Foundation.

 

Adapt-Equit is a social and therapeutic riding centre in Bailleul (Nord). It welcomes vulnerable people from very diverse backgrounds, helping to promoting social diversity. The association runs a day centre that supports 20 to 25 young offenders and children in care every year.  50% of these return to education or find an apprenticeship.

The association is planning to buy a van to transport two horses, with the support of the Eiffage Foundation. This will enable young people at the day centre to travel with the horses to outside events, but also provide “pony visiting" in prisons to help reintegrate young and adult offenders. The project is sponsored by Rémy Buret, works manager at Eiffage Route.
