Longlands Care Farm is a registered charity providing alternative education provision. It is based on a commercial farm. Longlands Care Farm cares for, mentors and supports disadvantaged and vulnerable young people aged 13 to 19 who are not succeeding in mainstream education. The principle outcome they seek for young people is to break a cycle of poor achievement and low aspiration.
Kit, who attended Chantry School in Martley and Worcester Sixth Form College, has become their first Patron:
I’m delighted and proud to be a Patron of Longlands Care Farm. I’ve known Longlands since I was a small child, first when on holiday in Whitbourne and then when I lived near the village from the age of 11. The work of the care farm in supporting young people making the next step in their lives is close to my heart.
