Introducing Social Care Farming
Farming activities are now being used nationwide as a pathway to improve the wellbeing of young people and adults.
Outcomes confirming the benefit:
Full engagement, increased self-esteem, motivation and confidence, improved work and social skills, lower levels of truancy and challenging behaviour, knowledge of farming, food and the countryside significantly expanded.
FarmBuddies work with you:
Our role, principally in West Sussex, East Sussex, Surrey, Kent, Hampshire and Berkshire, is as a 'matchmaker.' We link Social and Healthcare managers, parents or carers to selected farms and assist with the preparation for the participants' visits.
