FarmAbility is an independent charity that is committed to improving the quality of lives, through access to meaningful activities, for adults who have a learning disability and those who are also on the
Autistic Spectrum. We deliver farming and horticultural-based programmes for our clients - we call them co-farmers - by leveraging the generosity of community-based farm and gardens. These programmes offer
people who have a learning disability the opportunity to engage in daily purposeful activities that not only improve physical and mental health and well-being, but also foster a sense of community, and allow the
development and strengthening of their skills and abilities.
We are looking for enthusiastic and motivated individuals to join our dedicated team of Programme Leaders. Programme Leaders are responsible for supporting co-farmers in a range of purposeful outdoor
activities, enabling them to engage increasingly effectively, with the aim of developing skills and capacities that lead to greater enjoyment, increased confidence, better physical and mental health and more
independence, with the potential for some to move into paid employment, further training or volunteering. Programme Leaders work with small groups of co-farmers across a range of activities through the seasonal
year. These include livestock management, arable farming, gardening, forestry and woodworking. The focus is on a person-centred approach that enables co farmers to work as independently as possible. As a
team, Programme Leaders record individual co-farmer progress on a daily basis, thus contributing to ongoing monitoring and evaluation.
Annual Leave 25 days + bank holidays (pro rata). For further information please see Job Description below.
