Our Story

Amelia Trust Farm is a small charity based just off Five Mile Lane, close to Barry, in the Vale of Glamorgan.

Our Aim

Our aim is to provide a safe countryside environment for the local community to appreciate spending time in nature. We want everyone to enjoy the mental and physical benefits of spending time outside.

For over 30 years, we’ve provided therapeutic support to children who struggle in mainstream education. By creating a programme that’s focused on building confidence, improving communication, and learning new skills, we’re able to give young people the chance of a brighter future.

At Amelia Trust Farm we run the GROW programme, the Holiday project, and Transition project.

Our Values




Our History

On 20 September 1990 Amelia Methodist Trust Company Limited was incorporated to receive a 160 acre farm with derelict buildings and barns. 

Benefactors Bob and Ethel Huggard worked with the Reverend John Stacy-Marks and the Methodist Church in Wales to create a living memorial to Bob’s mother Amelia. Their vision was to use the Farm as a ‘rural lung’ for a variety of people but especially those who are disadvantaged and vulnerable in attempt to foster self-help, build confidence and enhance employment prospects which to this day remains the core purpose of our charity.

We are funded by the services we deliver, donations, fundraising, and grants.
