"It makes me feel better knowing that I am helping someone else."

Our Ethos

Lakeside is a supported working community that is accessible to all. We want our users to take a lead in developing the farm. Participants will be encouraged to grow in confidence and skills, and to develop their independence. Their health and wellbeing will be nurtured and supported. 

Literacy and numeracy skills are embedded within our work. We are accredited providers of AQA Unit Awards and the John Muir Award, an environmental award scheme that encourages people to connect with, enjoy and care for all wild places. 

Our activities are underpinned by developing literacy and numeracy skills, we will look to offer supported internships and accredited AQA units and courses.
