We are a charity based on a farm in North Marston, Bucks providing alternative day provision for children and adults facing various challenges. We have around 50 clients who come to the farm at various times each week, some for a few hours, some 5 days per week. Many of the children have been unable to, or are struggling to maintain education in a formal settings due to social, emotional or behavioural issues. Many of the adults also struggle with activities in the wider community due to physical or mental difficulties. On the farm they undertake various tasks caring for our large animal family or doing gardening or other tasks around the farm, including woodworking projects etc. We find this helps to reduce their anxieties, builds confidence and helps them learn or develop other skills. They also gain valuable experience working both on their own and in groups, sharing tasks and problem solving.
