In August we were delighted to welcome the great Team from Future Roots Care Farm Countymen UK to inspire and train us.

We’ve kindly been donated some wonderful wood-working equipment from the Stanford family, some of which we’ve already been using to create items with the young men who come here, boosting their confidence as well as their skills.
