Volunteering and Wellbeing

We offer a range of volunteer and wellbeing opportunities that enable people to spend time in a green space, meet new people, learn new skills or get work experience. 

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we have had to limit the number of people participating in our groups to ensure everyone's safety. During this time we are only accepting new enquiries from people that are isolated, have learning difficulties or experiencing poor mental health. Have a look at the open activities below and contact us on getinvolved@swcityfarm.co.uk.

We hope to open general volunteer opportunities over the summer months.

Current activities include:

Supported placements for adults with learning difficulties

We offer unique training placements and therapeutic activities in horticulture and animal care for adults with learning difficulties. All our sessions are socially distanced and safely designed to minimise the risk of Covid - 19 transmission. 

Gardening and growing

Nestled amongst the trees at the bottom of the Farm, the Log Cabin provides a safe, accessible and well equipped environment in which trainees are supported to a high staff to trainee ratio. During the course of their placement, trainees will learn new skills, gain new interests, grow in confidence, develop support networks and attain greater independence all whilst playing an active role within the community.

Placements can be arranged through individual personal payments, referrals through Bristol City Council's Support Planning team or through South Gloucestershire Council.
