Charity information

Gamelea Countryside Training Trust.

Set in 215 acres of glorious Derbyshire countryside on the Chatsworth Estate in the Peak District, Gamelea Countryside Training Trust (GCTT) is a beautiful location for an innovative, agricultural-based initiative, which is unique in the East Midlands.
The Trust, which was set-up as a Company Limited by Guarantee and Registered Charity in 1999, is dedicated to helping people with learning disabilities to gain vocational skills, learn about work and to move into employment.
Our students are given a genuine opportunity to gain employment and for many it is the first time in their lives that they have been given responsibility.
We offer horticulture, agriculture, woodcrafts, mechanics/metal craft, horse care, small animal care, pottery and I. T. We also have a varied selection of animals including rare breed pigs, cattle, cockatiels and budgies, fancy fowls, ducks and geese, ferrets, two barn owls, 750 free range hens, stables and dog kennels with six farm dogs.
In our safe environment we are often astounded by the development of the students and have seen so many successes – and we want them to continue.
Everyone is welcome to visit us and see the Trust in operation at any time.
If you would like any further information about coming to Gamelea or think that you may be able to help us in some way, either by volunteering, sponsorship, a donation, or materials we would be very pleased to hear from you.
