A farm working with disadvantaged and vulnerable young people who struggle in mainstream education to develop behavioural, emotional and social skilss to empower them to regain control over their lives. Through a positive, expressive and nurturing environment, the programme aims to increase their motivation and self-worth. The farm uses a range of activities and therapies such as animal assisted therapies, learning skills in nature and improving health and fitness, to support the young people emotionally as well as equip them with practical skills to help them transition into further education, training or employment afterwards.
What we love about it:
Food and farming is only just the tip of the iceberg. The benefits of coming together and learning new skills is the foundation to feeling empowered and have a sense of purpose.
