Since 2013, FarmAbility have been transforming the lives of adults with learning disabilities and autism through outdoor, farm-based work in Oxfordshire.

Their programme sees participants (‘co-farmers’) engage in real-life farming work, from animal care to cultivation. Individually tailored programmes help co-farmers achieve their own long-term goals, whether it’s developing independence or securing employment. 73% of co-farmers reported increased confidence and 74% acquired practical skills. With such a unique offering, FarmAbility are in demand, with a waiting list of over a year.

Our support will unlock their potential to meet demand. Increased staff capacity will enable FarmAbility to take on a fifth site and establish a trading offer to propel further sustainable growth.
