These sessions offer a safe and nurturing environment for adults who need additional support such as those who have learning disabilities and/or those with mental health issues.
Care farming offers guided social interaction alongside meaningful and purposeful activities involving animals and nature. Our fantastic staff team has over 12 years of experience and is a mix of qualified teachers, therapists and mental health professionals. Social farming offers participants the chance to:
- Enhance self esteem

- Gain independence
- Improve problem solving skills
All farm tasks can be adapted to suit a range of abilities. We aim to provide a very person-centred service where individuals feel safe and respected. Opportunities exist where appropriate for individuals to gain some accreditation through ‘Gateway Qualifications’ this is entirely optional and by no means the focus of the sessions.
