    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    Here at Dedham Therapy Farm we provide Occupational Therapy with Animal Facilitated Therapy, through meaningful and purposeful activities, in a person centred way.

    Dedham Therapy Farm is home of the Nurture dogs🐾 but we also have pigs, goats, chickens, geese, sheep, ponies, rabbits and more.

    We bring the human-animal bond to as many people as possible.

    We offer 1-2-1 and group therapy sessions for anyone that suffers from mental health problems, anxiety, has autism or a learning disability.

    Farm assistants and their families are relying on this service to support their mental and physical health, they have real concerns about how they will manage with the service unavailable to them during the outbreak of Covid-19.

    Like many small and independent community projects, the Dedham Therapy Farm is facing some tough months ahead.

    We rely on income from the therapy sessions we run during the week, plus cash donations from the general public visiting at weekends, to cover the daily costs of feeding the animals, maintaining the land, paying our rent, bills and insurance, and paying the few staff that take a minimum wage to run things.

    It is not overstating the case to say that with things as they are, and both of those income streams unlikely to exist for the foreseeable future, we will not survive the next few months without alternative financial support.

    We appreciate everyone is facing financial uncertainties at the moment, but if you are able to offer any additional support to the farm, its animals and its staff to help ensure our survival it would be very much appreciated.

    If you would like to see more of what we do please visit our website page at Dedham Therapy Farm or Facebook page.
