About us

Jamie's Farm addresses the root causes of young peoples' disengagement, helping to prevent their educational and social exclusion.

'You can't be aggressive to a sheep' said one young beneficiary

The aim of Jamie's Farm is to transform the lives of young people from challenging inner city backgrounds by providing a unique combination of 'farming, family and therapy' during week long visits to our farm. Young people benefit through improved relationships, motivation, behaviour and self-esteem and ultimately decreased exclusion rates from school.

Our young people may be young carers, looked after children, asylum seekers or suffering bereavement. Others have a range of learning needs, or may present and describe turbulent family backgrounds, drug abuse and criminal activity. Almost all have never visited the countryside. All these children find interaction with the school system difficult; Jamie's Farm supports their re-engagement with education.
