Autism Bedfordshire, in partnership with Animal Edge Farm, provides a bespoke experience for autistic young people who are out of school or finding mainstream education unmanageable. This project offers these young people a weekly 1:1 hour long private visit where they can interact with animals, spend time in nature, and try activities tailored to their interests.
Our Farm Project creates positive experiences within a safe, nurturing environment. It offers autistic young people a therapeutic oasis to be themselves, build confidence, improve their self-esteem, and develop their independence outside of school.
The service is person-centred and is led by the young person and their family in developing their support plan, enabling them to achieve their aspirations and be part of their community.
This support can be funded by local authorities, schools, health providers or privately. Please be aware that an eligibility criteria is in place and access to this provision is subject to availability. Please call 01234 214871 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
