My Step Up is a care farm for adults with learning difficulties. We offer fun, outdoor activities to encourage our clients to be physically and mentally active. Our goals are to increase sociability, resilience and work towards independence.
Starting over six years ago, My Step Up has grown with one mission in mind: to have a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of adults with learning difficulties or other special needs.
After completing full-time education, many adults with special needs lose daily structure and regular social activities.
We offer what occupational therapists call purposeful activities that are meaningful to the person in relation to his or her occupational history, preferences, personal goals, and needs.
Our farm setting and animals are used to enrich our clients and engage with them physically, socially and mentally. We’ve seen first-hand the benefits to confidence, social skills and mental health.
At My Step Up, we encourage our clients to get outside, care for animals (animal therapy), participate in daily farm tasks and much more. There are certain tasks that need to be done every day but there are lots of different tasks to get involved in.
If you’re looking for hands-on, outdoor animal, farm based activities for adults with learning difficulties, please contact us and we can arrange a visit.
