Charity information

Jamie's Farm

Since its foundation in 2009 Jamie’s Farm has enabled over 4,000 disadvantaged young people (aged 11-16) from across the UK to thrive academically, socially and emotionally, through a unique blend of ‘Farming, Family and Therapy’. This occurs through a transformative week-long residential on one of our farms where children contribute to the running of the farm, punctuated with therapeutic activities in individual and group settings. A rigorous follow up programme ensures these changes last.
