Community Inclusion

Service description

We work with small groups of vulnerable adults, including learning disabled, autistic and the mentally ill, in a tranquil rural environment six miles north of Bedford.  We care for five acres of woodland, hedges, orchards and meadow and grow herb and wildflower plants to sell.  We also produce and sell our own preserves, cards, jewellery and gifts.

 

Your day will be divided into three working sessions, giving an opportunity for a variety of outdoor and indoor activities.  You will work with different groups of about 3-6 people and will have the opportunity to learn and practise new skills and to adjust – or readjust - to a real working environment yet within a safe and caring atmosphere.

 

Your working day will be recorded by yourself and your supervisors, giving you an opportunity to work towards your own targets and appreciate your progress.  Informal reviews from time to time ensure that you are still reaping maximum benefit from attending the programme.

 

For those enquiring we welcome informal visits with family or key workers, and encourage you to try out a whole day before making any decision or application.  Please phone us to arrange this if you are interested.
