Next Big Gig is Wednesday 27th September in WYTHAM

The next BIG gig is now scheduled for Wednesday 27th September where we will be exploring the challenges faced by FarmAbility at THE FIELD STATION, WYTHAM OXFORD OX2 8QJ

FarmAbility is an outdoor, farm-based programme for people with autism and/or learning disabilities. These are FarmAbility co-farmers.

The FarmAbility programme combines the rich ingredients of the farming environment (nature, animals, and purposeful activities) with an approach that supports people to progress through meaningful occupation. FarmAbility’s ‘enabling’ approach, which incorporates learning from Occupational Therapy and other relevant practice, considers each person’s specific interests, needs and abilities in order to encourage independence, choice and autonomy through the development of skills and the building of confidence.   http://farminspirationtrust.org/farmability/

As always places are limited and we expect demand to be high so if you would like to join in please let Paul Essery know so he can add your name to the attendee list for the evening.
