About Lindfield

Lindfield is a working smallholding and has been established as a resource for young adults who have learning, physical or mental disabilities. We are a forward thinking organisation and our small farm and indoor workshops provide a progressive environment for stimulating personal and social development.

Lindfield provides quality care, skills for work and living and a wide range of activities for young adults with disabilities, whose needs are best met by an active approach to life and learning and who require a safe environment in which to receive care and support. Individual, flexible support programmes can be arranged.

Our main focus is on providing opportunities to gain life building skills and experiences through practical tasks, teamwork and through working alone. We feel that supported learning through success and failure is a key part of learning and that failure heightens the feeling of success and the fulfilment of a goal. Passing on information of achievements and of what went wrong gives a great sense of self-importance and self-worth. Feeling that you have achieved something is only possible if you have had to work for it.

Clients may like to continue with an outside interest or hobby whilst at Lindfield this can nearly always be catered for. Whether it is something special like making a display shelf to cleaning their golf clubs, making an air fix model, painting, or messy activities that may not be that easy to cater for at home. In our workshop we have the tools and equipment to do most woodwork, crafts or hobby and leisure activities, as well as outside venues to sit and paint, draw or just relax when the weather allows.

There is plenty to do at Lindfield and plenty to be involved in. We create an atmosphere of belonging and value all contributions to the daily success of our Smallholding.
