Jamie’s Farm transforms the lives of vulnerable children in challenging urban schools.

We provide a unique combination of ‘farming, family and therapy’ through a short stay residential and follow up programme. We aim to re-engage children with educational life, and enable them to fulfil their potential both in school and the wider social setting.

We are committed to:

  • A preventative approach;
  • Building long term partnerships with schools and charities that bring children to Jamie’s Farm;
  • Giving children a framework of support that will allow the impact of the farm on self-esteem, relationships and behaviour to continue

A visit to Jamie’s Farm results in:

  • Fewer fixed term and permanent exclusions;
  • Reengagement with teachers, school and educational life;
  • Professional development opportunities for all visiting staff;
  • Memories that last a lifetime, and an opportunity to reform patterns of behaviour in school and beyond.

We are extremely proud of the impact we make on students, teachers and schools. For more information on our results, see our Impact page
