A brilliant new video from Church of England’s Birmingham Diocese has been released that shows the joy and challenges of Oasis Animal Encounters. The social enterprise with alpacas, bearded dragons, sheep and goats is based in Winson Green’s Oasis Academy Foundry and Newbigin House, and helps young people in the community with animal therapy and generates income by being hired out to events.  The video shows how the alpacas are very good, but also how the sheep and the goats need a creative solution.
