Some volunteers support co-farmers during activities around the farm, providing encouragement and guidance, and sharing their energy and skills with co-farmers. Other volunteers provide much-needed expertise in financial accounting, or practitioner knowledge such as occupational therapy. Volunteers enjoy our friendly atmosphere, quickly becoming part of the FarmAbility team of staff, co-farmers and other volunteers, and appreciate the chance to do rewarding work while gaining new skills and experience in a beautiful, outdoor setting.
We welcome volunteers from many different walks of life, and we’d love to hear from you if you would like to explore a volunteering role with FarmAbility. To find out more and have a chat about volunteering, please contact JP@farm-ability.org.uk.
Making a difference in Corri’s name
Corri’s Fund was set up in March 2014, in memory of Corri Waitt. Corri co-founded and inspired FarmAbility, and when she died we lost an inspiring, compassionate, and loving friend and colleague.
Corri was passionate about building the confidence, knowledge and skills of adults with autism and learning disabilities by means of a therapeutic farm-based programme, and she cared deeply that some people struggled to access services that could help them move forward in their lives.
We set up Corri’s Fund to enable more people to become regular co-farmers at FarmAbility. Money raised and donated will ensure that more adults with autism and disabilities can access our day service. Corri’s Fund will also help us to strengthen and expand the service we provide to co-farmers. Donations are received through the Farm Inspiration Trust’s JustGiving page www.justgiving.com/farminspirationtrust.
