Coming to Clinks Care Farm may be part of your day care provision and you will have the opportunity to develop a variety of practical skills, social skills and work towards independence and possibly employment.
Whatever your disability or reason for wanting to come to Clinks Care Farm, what’s important is that you are keen to get stuck in with the activities on the farm. Our focus is not so much on your disability but more on your abilities and we would love you to come along and get involved.
Due to the fact that Clinks Farm is a working farm, we can’t take referrals for people with significant mobility problems or people who require 1:1 support from staff on the farm. If you are not sure whether your referral fit the criteria, please contact Clinks Care Farm to discuss your referral.
A social worker or (mental) health professional can refer. We recommend that they contact the farm first for an initial discussion. Placements are often funded through a personal budget. Clinks Care Farm is accredited by Norfolk County Council and Suffolk County Council social care services, who assess people for a personal budget and finance this.
Click below to download a generic referral form or fill in one online. Once we have received a referral, we will organise a visit to the farm for you to come and have look around. If a placement seems appropriate, we will offer a taster day, for you to come and try it out for yourself.
If you have mental health issues and they are not severe enough to receive help from the mental health service you may want to try Farm Therapy instead.
