Sponsor an Animal

Patchwork Farm, our wonderful therapeutic care farm, opened in 2017. This fantastic multi-sensory learning environment has proved incredibly popular with the children and young people in our care (not to mention our staff too).

The farm provides a calming, outside space where young people can enjoy spending time interacting with the animals as well as providing benefits such as helping to build confidence and to develop language and communication skills. Every class in Chailey Heritage School has a lesson on our therapeutic farm each week and the animals also receive visits from the young adults who use our residential and outreach services. Sometimes, the animals are even allowed to visit the young people in their classrooms!

The animals on Patchwork Farm have all been chosen with the young people in mind. They are gentle and friendly in nature and enjoy human interaction and affection. The animals include donkeys, pigs, sheep, pygmy goats, ducks, guinea pigs, tortoises, chickens, and our newest resident, NicNac the Shetland Pony.

We need ongoing support to cover the costs of running the farm. Could you help by sponsoring an animal?

We are pleased to offer our new and updated animal sponsorship packs kindly printed by Gemini Print and beautifully gift wrapped and delivered in eco-friendly packaging by Tiny Box Company; the perfect gift for a friend or member of the family.
