FarmAbility

Charity description

FarmAbility logo
We believe that adults with autism and learning disabilities should have access to meaningful activities that improve their well-being and increase their independence, enabling them to participate actively in their communities.

FarmAbility is an outdoor, farm-based programme of animal husbandry, horticulture and seasonal tasks for adults with autism and learning disabilities. These are our co-farmers.
Working in small groups, supported by enthusiastic staff and volunteers, co-farmers gain a real sense of purpose and achievement, while building the practical and vocational skills they need to move forward in their lives.

Through our day service programme, we support co-farmers to build their confidence, improve their well-being and physical health, and engage in accredited and non-accredited learning programmes. This helps to build a ‘can do’ approach – raising co-farmers’ self-esteem and ultimately their achievement, and all this while having fun too!

Co-farmers come to the farm 1-4 days a week (Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays), for sessions starting at 10am and finishing at 4pm. We are open nearly all year round, whatever the weather!

Charity No: 1153282
