Covid-19: An update from Jamie’s Farm
For many of the young people and vulnerable groups that we support, a trip to Jamie’s Farm is needed now more than ever. We are delighted that all our farms are open and working with local vulnerable children at this especially challenging time.
Throughout the spring term, we are offering programmes of day visits to vulnerable groups local to our farms and continue to offer remote support. Our day visit programme sees young people visit the farm every day for a week, receiving support to help address the challenges and stresses that have been exacerbated during the pandemic. This is a great opportunity to support more young people in the communities local to our farms. Our residential programme for mainstream schools will re-start as soon as government guidelines allow, which is currently expected to be April 2021. If you have a group that could benefit from either programme, please see our school’s page for more information and get in touch to book.
The safety of our visiting young people and their teachers, our staff and volunteers as well as the communities surrounding our farms remains our utmost priority. We have put in place effective measures and procedures to keep everybody safe while on our farms. We will, of course, continue to monitor public health guidance and ensure we meet all guidelines and best practice.
We are determined to do all we can to ensure that Jamie’s Farm emerges from this crisis in a strong position so that we can continue to have a transformative impact on some of the country’s most deserving young people. If you would like to help us weather the storm, click here to support us.
We want to extend a huge thank you to all our dedicated school partners, supporters and staff who have helped us throughout this period so that we can continue to change the lives of young people for years to come. We will keep you updated on our progress.
With Best Wishes,
The Jamie’s Farm Team
