Farming programme prevents urban young people from social exclusion

The Westminster Foundation teamed up with Jamie’s Farm to help the charity reach more disadvantaged children and young people at risk of academic or social exclusion.

The partnership reflects the organisations’ shared passion to create positive life chances for vulnerable children and young people by encouraging environments where they feel safe, respected and can display their talents.

Jamie’s Farm operates a unique farming, family and therapy model where, within a residential experience, young people become fully involved on operational farms over five days. 

This new partnership will build on Jamie’s Farm’s existing programme by supporting six visits annually for disadvantaged pupils from schools/organisations from the Westminster Foundation’s areas of focus including Chester, Westminster and rural Lancashire.
