Helping learning disabled adults and adults with autism into paid employment is the main focus of our work at Little Gate Farm. We know that work brings financial benefits and improves self esteem, physical and mental health and friendship.
Our Work Training programme offers learning disabled adults and adults with autism the opportunity to gain new skills and grow in confidence. They gain work experience whilst looking after the farm, caring for animals and working on our horticulture project.
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.
For learning disabled and autistic children and young people aged 8 to 18. We support children and young people with learning disabilities and autism through our Young Ranger programme. This project runs during school holidays.
