We are committed to the welfare of companion animals and promote responsible pet ownership through education
We believe every child and every young person in Bath and North East Somerset deserves an equal opportunity and the same chance to succeed.
Our ambition is to change the lives of vulnerable children and young people who have not been given that equal chance of success.
We are a small team with a big voice and an even bigger impact. Our programmes focus on key areas of need in our community – Education, Inclusion and Employability.
We target young people in their every day environments – whether that’s in the park, at school or in the street.
Our participants leave with raised confidence, and new life skills, part of the Bath Rugby family.
We were established in 2016 as we felt there was a need for a different approach to helping these beautiful creatures. Based in Frome, Somerset we’re run by a board of Trustees and a dedicated team of volunteers. We are totally self funded and all money raised goes towards helping cats. Our cats are individually treated according to their needs. We believe there is a place for every cat, but not every cat is suitable for every home. Those that are “domestic” and are happy to live with us will go to live with one of our special foster mums or dads. When the right person comes along they are then adopted and move to their new home. We promote responsible pet ownership so all our cats & kittens are vaccinated, microchipped and insured for 5 weeks.
9 million people in the UK say they are always or often lonely and we know that lacking social connections is a comparable risk factor for early death as smoking 15 cigarettes a day. It might surprise you to hear that young adults are more likely to feel lonely than older age groups.
#CompassionateBanes is a new grassroots movement that will train volunteer Community Connectors to help people of all ages find the support they need to break out of a cycle of isolation and loneliness. We are also bringing together people from the NHS, Council and local charities to work in a more joined up way.
We’d love to hear from compassionate people who want to make a difference in their community.

The TRC was founded in Bath in 2011 by Betsy de Thierry, in order to see children recover from trauma.
The TRC employs creative psychotherapists who specialise in the Trauma Recovery approach in order to help children & young people process their trauma and support them as they piece their lives back together until a wholeness can be found.
The parents and carers engage in a Psychoeducation course called ‘Parenting the traumatised child’ which provides therapeutic support, and an understanding of how trauma impacts a child’s brain, with helpful strategies for the home life. This course is based on the book: The Simple Guide to Child Trauma (Betsy de Thierry, 2017).
We hold as a high value our work and support of the parents/carers, and our experience of supporting teachers to form a holistic support service. Oakside Creative Education Centre is a project that has been formed to provide additional support for the most vulnerable children and young people.
We are excited about the interconnectedness of the TRC Therapy centre and Oakside Creative, with the TRC Training Centre providing excellent cutting edge training in trauma recovery.
