One of our clients’ reasons for being is “to care for humans and animals alike”. We matched them with Amelia Trust Farm in Cardiff who support vulnerable young people who, they said, often feel like society has given up on them. Amelia Trust Farm provides education, work experience and a sense of belonging as well as teaching the youngsters to care for animals.
The team worked with our joiners against the clock, through Storm Brendan to build animal pens, a goat climbing frame and a network of bat and bird boxes. They constructed an indoor picnic area and an educational zone. They also teamed up with Jen, our psychologist, to look at ways of building confidence in the young people. The client described how the work had both inspired and galvanised them. For the young people at Amelia Trust, they learnt that this team had not given up on them.
