Situation

Local statistics indicate that socially & economically deprived families are stuck in a cyclical pattern of disadvantage leading to family breakdown, domestic abuse & addiction that we seek to address. Having catered residentially for over 1,000 women and children from all over the UK, over 2,800 people in total, including day projects for men & women, GNFC is well placed to provide activities that strengthen family bonds & break the cycle of dysfunction for the next generation

Solution

We will provide a range of activities to encourage families to work/play together, enjoy the countryside & learn new skills. Additional buildings & land will provide educational activities for children & adults including those with lower level mobility to access equestrian, traditional country crafts & horticulture projects. Skills projects for young people help prepare them for work & a productive lifestyle. A Structured Recovery Programme of work skills/courses empowers women towards sobriety,
