Our staff respect that everyone’s ability is different and there is a need for choice and control to enable people to develop their independence through a wide and varied range of activities. It is our goal to improve choice and control, and the ability to develop potential so people can flourish in a safe and realistic work setting.
The project activities take place in our five-acre gardens and our barn joinery eight-bench workshop, developing joinery and horticulture skills, beekeeping and enterprise development.

Is Seeds of Change the right choice?
The majority accessing Seeds of Change are adults with learning difficulties and other physical difficulties although we also support those experiencing mental health issues. We offer a flexible approach meaning people can come for as little as half a day a week up to a full week of support. Speak with Chris Armstrong for further details.
This is what some of those we currently work with have to say:
“I was afraid of bees before I came here and now I'm learning how to become a Bee Keeper”
“I never travelled alone and never thought I could until I came here. Now I get the Metro on my own every day and its great”
Here’s what some of those we have worked with in the past have to say:
“Getting a job was never something I thought was possible, but now I have one.”
“I now live away from my parents in a house with other people just like me and I love it.”
Contact us to have a go and see what you think
We offer taster days to give potential clients’ and their families a sense of what it is like to be part of the project, what activities they can engage with and how they will get along with one another to form collaborative ways of working.
Everything we do is designed to grow independence of thinking and being. If a day is too long then we’re happy to offer a mini-tour.
