East Clayton Farm

We are a Care Farm in the South Downs National Park. We work with marginalised and disadvantaged beneficiaries. We use the farm and farm animals to work therapeutically with our visitors. Our work is supported by a team of volunteers. We are developing our work with those living with dementia, looking for an increasing number of individuals to come to the farm to engage with our activities that will bring benefits to their well being. We work with a small number of livestock: donkeys, goats, pigs, chickens, rabbits and guinea pigs. We are also developing a dementia friendly growing space.

1. Action Plan

We are talking to groups locally who work directly with those with dementia and explaining the activities that are available as East Clayton Farm.  We are listening to group organisers and carers and hope to meet with client groups to discuss how being on the farm and engaging with animals and a growing space can be of benefit for those affected by dementia.

We will be using questionnaires to take feedback from carers and where appropriate from service users to assess the effectiveness of our provision and to reflect on any adaptions needed.
