Lane End Farm is a working hill farm situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty in the middle of the Peak District National Park in North Derbyshire. We provide a simple environment of real quality where disabled and disadvantaged young people can be at one with Nature and connect with their beautiful surroundings and our animals.
Lane End Farm caters for young adults from all walks of life; inner city, deprived, abused, neglected, disabled (both mentally and physically), or with learning difficulties and behavioural problems.
We help them by providing excellent outdoor farm activities and encouraging personal development through individual 'mentoring' programs. These have proved to be particularly successful for young people with Autistic Spectrum Disorder.
We also provide support and accommodation in a converted stone barn called 'The Room for All Seasons' which has been specifilcally designed for wheelchair users, in particular, young people paralysed by spinal cord injury.
