We inspire, nurture and expand horizons for children and young people so that they can make the most of their potential. We run programmes for children who have been or who are currently struggling with a wide range of adverse childhood experiences and have been excluded or are in danger of being excluded, from mainstream education. We run programmes for children and young people who have additional educational needs – to help them develop life skills, grow in confidence and reduce the risk of isolation. We host schools on day and residential visits so that they can learn in a different environment, grow in confidence and develop bonds with classmates and teaching staff. Finally, we enable college students to fulfill the practical elements of agriculture and environmental qualifications.
