FarmAbility is an independent charity committed to improving the quality of lives through access to meaningful activities for adults who have a learning disability and those who are also on the Autistic Spectrum.
It delivers farming and horticultural-based programmes for our clients – known as co-farmers – in partnership with community-based and local farms and gardens.
These programmes offer people who have a learning disability the opportunity to engage in daily purposeful activities that not only improve physical and mental health and wellbeing, but also foster a sense of community, and allow the development and strengthening of their skills and abilities.
FarmAbility are looking for an enthusiastic and motivated individual to join our dedicated team of programme leaders. Programme leaders work with colleagues to plan and deliver day-to-day tasks on our farm sites for our co-farmers to participate in.
They are responsible for supporting co-farmers in a range of purposeful outdoor activities, enabling them to engage increasingly effectively, with the aim of developing skills and capacities. This support leads to greater enjoyment, increased confidence, better physical and mental health and more independence for our participants.
