My Step Up is a care farm for adults with learning difficulties. We offer fun, outdoor activities to encourage our clients to be physically and mentally active. Our goals are to increase sociability, resilience and work towards independence.
Starting in 2011, My Step Up has grown with one mission in mind: to have a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of adults with learning difficulties or other special needs.
After completing full-time education, many adults with special needs lose daily structure and regular social activities.
We offer what occupational therapists call purposeful activities that are meaningful to the person in relation to his or her occupational history, preferences, personal goals, and needs.
Our farm setting and animals are used to enrich our clients and engage with them physically, socially and mentally. We’ve seen first-hand the benefits to confidence, social skills and mental health.
