How we aim to Help

The main reason we are here is to help families in difficulty.
We're here for YOU, every step of the way

Our work with families is unique, in that we don’t 'intervene', we work alongside; befriending, helping and supporting families who visit for a day, weekend or several weekends. Working together is critical to the success of Longmead. Central to this is the willingness of families to get involved and participate in the activities, as well as being open to reflect on their individual family circumstances. Longmead is affiliated to the 'care farming' network, and its working is based on their code of practice. A visit to Longmead can result in amazing improvements in a whole range of family and social issues - we're looking forward to helping in YOUR life too…

  • Becoming a more united and mutually supportive family

  • Securing paid work for the very first time

  • It's not just mums in need of our help!

  • Reuniting or healing where hope was once lost
