Working Small Animal Farm
ITV Region: Meridian West / Year: 2009
Ferring Country Centre
This project has created a small animal farm to encourage adults with learning disabilities to develop their skills in animal husbandry and take responsibility for the welfare of the animals. The building work involved local businesses, clients and staff, as well as volunteers from the local community. The project also benefits the children and young adults with special needs who attend the riding therapy unit or use the centre for summer play schemes.
