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.
Jamie’s Farm acts as a catalyst for change, enabling disadvantaged young people to thrive academically, socially and emotionally.
We provide a unique combination of ‘farming, family and therapy’ through a short stay residential and follow up programme. We aim to re-engage children with educational life, and enable them to fulfil their potential both in school and the wider social setting.
We are committed to:
A preventative approach;
Building long term partnerships with schools and charities that bring children to Jamie’s Farm;
Giving children a framework of support that will allow the impact of the farm on self-esteem, relationships and behaviour to continue.
Jamie's Farm aims to:
- Significantly impact the self-esteem, engagement, behaviour and soft skills of disadvantaged young people nationwide.
- Create strong and lasting relationships with partner organisations and build capacity in the education system.
- Create a strong and stable organisation.
