Volunteering at FarmAbility

We welcome volunteers from all walks of life who’d like to support our work.  Many volunteers at FarmAbility spend the day out and about on the farm, working in small groups with co-farmers and Programme Leaders and offering encouragement, enthusiasm and skills.  No specialist knowledge or experience is required – just an open mind, an interest in supporting people to progress, and a love of the outdoors!

Other volunteers provide much-needed expertise in bookkeeping and accountancy, and we’re always keen to find more office-based volunteers to help with administration, fundraising, PR, communications and marketing..!  All volunteers enjoy our friendly atmosphere where they soon become part of the FarmAbility family and appreciate the chance to do rewarding work while gaining new skills and experience in a beautiful, outdoor setting.

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.

Corri’s Fund

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 a compassionate 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 people can access our day service. Corri’s Fund will also help us strengthen and expand the service we provide to co-farmers. Donations are received through our JustGiving page www.justgiving.com/farminspirationtrust.
