CASE STUDY: Countryways – Enabling growth
Countryways CIC’s Farming in Protected Landscapes grant will enable more people with learning difficulties, physical and mental health challenges to benefit from contact with farming.
Countryways Community Interest Company is situated on a working farm which is part of the Central Chilterns Farmer Cluster. It operates separately to the farm as a not-for-profit Social Enterprise with five Volunteer Directors. Countryways CIC works alongside the farmer, delivering high quality educational interaction with the public and positive outcomes for all.
In recent years Countryways has worked with many individuals and organisations with learning difficulties, physical and mental health challenges. The FiPL grant of £17,095 contributed towards total project costs of £20,595 which will help Countryways fund a number of changes so that more people can benefit from contact with farming.
