The Island Community Haven CIC, in partnership with The National Lottery Community Fund, is offering the opportunity for local young people to participate in a farm-based youth club at our farm in Draycott, Derby.
Young people can join in with farm-based activities including animal feeding, basic vet care and training. The youth club will provide learning opportunities in a safe and secure environment. Sessions are delivered by friendly staff who are experienced, DBS checked and excited to welcome you to the farm!
The benefits of being around animals and nature in a therapeutic environment are well documented for improving wellbeing. We hope to inspire social intelligence, emotional resilience as well as a thirst for academic knowledge.
Please complete the online application to register your interest in our youth club.
“95% of young people feel they are nurtured, active, respected, responsible, included, safe, healthy and achieving”
I love being around Boris, the donkeys and the goats just because I like being with animals. It makes me feel happy and relaxed. I like helping out with the farm e.g. filling up hay nets, checking health of animals and grooming etc.
