New initiative launched to provide ‘life-changing’ experience for adults with learning disabilities – Salisbury Journal

A NEW social enterprise project providing “life-changing” activities for adults with learning disabilities has been launched.

Able Hands Together (AHT) is a not-for-profit organisation based at River Bourne Community Farm in Laverstock.

A special ribbon cutting ceremony was held last Friday, September 22 with Lord Pembroke to mark the official launch.

“Able Hands provides an extraordinary life-changing experience for our users, who we call co-farmers,” said founder Laura Tween, who has worked with adults with learning disabilities for more than 20 years.

“We all work together to care for the pigs, cows, goats, sheep and rabbits. Our mission is to teach our co-farmers how to nurture livestock and to grow their own produce so that they can cook from their success.”
