Creating opportunities for people with learning disabilities and autism to help them live fulfilling and independent lives.
Little Gate Farm

Woodland enterprise

We have 20 acres of ancient Woodland at Little Gate Farm. Our team of learning disabled and autistic work trainees manage our woodland sustainably and use the woodland as a resource for a social enterprise.

Young rangers

For learning disabled and autistic children and young people aged 8 to 18.ย We support children and young people with learning disabilities through our Young Ranger programme. ย This project runs during school holidays.

Our team work in two areas: the farm team are based in Beckley and do work training, while the supported employment team are based in Hastings and work with employers and trainees to find job opportunities and support our trainees as they go into work.

This is the first of a new series across our social media, all about the Little Gate journey, showing all the behind the scenes of our work!๐Ÿ˜Š

Today we are introducing you to Vocational Profiling!๐Ÿ’š Pictured here are Mary (trainee) and Sam (staff). Sam has been working over the past year to come up with an alternative to the traditional โ€˜CVโ€™, and it has been working like a dream!๐Ÿ’ซ

We work with the trainee directly to find out about their likes, dislikes, talents, other commitments etc. To make sure we match them with the perfect job for them๐Ÿ˜Š The process is more visual and interactive- making it much more accessible for trainees. We also conduct a home visit with the people who know our trainees best, to get an extra insight๐Ÿ’š

We endeavour to place them in a job that works for them, and itโ€™s the behind the scenes stuff that makes it all work! Big thanks to Sam for being fab!๐ŸŒป

Meet Emily!

Emily has just finished doing work experience with Hastings Borough Council!๐Ÿ˜Š She was doing a data entry job that desperately needed doing- and did amazingly well!๐Ÿ’š

Emily had a build in confidence working in a professional office environment- making friends with some of the staff๐Ÿ’ซ Another work trainee will be going into this post, keep an eye out for their progress- no doubt theyโ€™ll be just as fantastic as Emily was.

๐ŸŒปWell done Emily!๐ŸŒป
