Supported Placements

Supported Placements

We work closely with individuals and other organisations to provide Supported Volunteer Placements at the farm. We create a tailored programme to suit the individual's needs and care plan. This usually includes one-to-one support provided by the referring organisation.

Supported Volunteer Placements offer a fantastic way of providing formal and informal social interactions and a healthy outdoors experience in a friendly and safe environment. We have observed how much of an impact this can have on people's lives; improving their quality of life and happiness.

There is a fee for this service.

For an informal discussion about what we can offer please contact the farm's Volunteer Coordinator Ian on 0117 938 1128 or

"M's independence goals are really supported by coming to the farm. She walks here by herself without being collected, she decides when it's break time, and she has input into what we grow. Of course it is great to be outside as well." A Support Worker
