Coop Community Cause

Coop Community Fund – please choose Idlewild Animal Sanctuary as your Local Community Cause.

We would like to fund supervision staff to provide positive, active, one-to-one support for people with disabilities and additional needs during their time at the sanctuary.

How this cause brings people in the community together

We wish to employ supervision staff for people with disabilities and additional needs who need one-to-one support to volunteer and spend time with the animals. This will help improve mental health, wellbeing and personal development through engagement at the sanctuary. It is well documented that spending time with animals is beneficial to mental and emotional wellbeing.
