  • Mission statement

    Spadework bridges the gap for adults with learning difficulties and other disabilities, from dependence in a supportive environment, to increasing their independence, enabling them to live with dignity and purpose.
    We aspire to achieve this through work experience, development of life skills and interaction with the community.
    The Garden Centre, Farm Shop and Café are all open each day to the general public, which enables the trainees to interact with the customers, helping to improve their social skills, which in turn can increase their confidence and self-esteem.
