What is the GROW programme?

At Amelia Trust Farm, we understand that the traditional classroom setting doesn’t suit everyone.

We provide a personalised approach to learning that prioritises building confidence, improving communication, and learning new skills. With high levels of pastoral care from professional staff, and small group sessions in our unique environment, everyone is given the space they need to grow.

Who do we help?

Our GROW programme is for young people aged between 11 and 16 who have been referred to us by their school or local authority. To find out more about our provision, please get in touch.

How do we help?

On the GROW programme, young people will:

  • Learn how to take care of the animals
  • Budget and cook healthy meals
  • Work outside in the woodland
  • Engage in sports and exercise
  • Complete projects in the craft workshop
  • Spend therapeutic time in our music studio
  • Work towards Agored accredited qualifications

When a child struggles, their family struggles too.

After years of battling with systems in which our son just did not fit, he found his place to thrive.

Month by month, year by year, the staff at GROW never gave up, encouraged, inspired, challenged, corrected and cheered our boy on until finally he started to achieve, needing less cajoling and independently started to show his true colours….

…The difference this team has made to not only our son, but us as a family is undeniably one of the most positive things that’s happened over the last five years.
