For Care Farming, people facing various challenges may join us for the day (10am to 3pm) or half day to be involved in various activities around the farm. Unfortunately we can’t currently have people with serious mobility problems as our toilet facilities are not suitable and ground uneven. (A new toilet block within old walls is something we are working on: see our fund raising page). However, if you live locally and want to pop in for a short while, do phone us to see if we can help.
The social healthcare system in the UK is becoming more “personalised” so that certain individuals have a “personal budget”, deciding from their own interests, perhaps with the help of others, what kind of health care and therapy to access. For people who do not have these budgets, sometimes grants may be available to help.
If you’re interested in attending (or responsible for someone with a strong interest), please fill in an enquiry form. We have a more detailed referral/ application form to ensure everyone including our animals are safe, but you may want to wait until we’ve responded to your first enquiry before you fill this in.
Health and safety is important to us : we have numerous written policies which we review and adhere to; Staff and volunteers are DBS checked and we avoid one to one settings as far as is possible.
