Dedham Therapy Farm is a CIC, Community Interest Company. We are a not for profit organisation.
Our purpose is primarily to bring therapy to as many people as possible using animals, nature and the outdoors to help people recover from a variety of challenges in their lives.

We offer Animal Facilitated Therapy combined with Occupational Therapy Sessions to clients in the community.
It is well known that animals, nature and activity have a therapeutic value to humans, which enables us to be restored to better health and well being by interacting with them on a regular basis.

We provide a variety of activities on the farm such as animal care, land management, woodwork, conservation, gardening and much more.
We also offer work experience and alternative education for young people.

The Farm covers 14 acres and houses many farm animals which are used in our animal therapy programmes.

The Farm currently offers individual or group animal therapy to service users with Autism, anxiety, learning disabilities, low self-esteem and lack of confidence and other challenges.

Service users help with the daily running of the farm, giving those who access the Farm the ability to be a key part of our project’s growth and development.

Animal-assisted therapy (AAT) promotes mental, physical and social well-being. The human-animal bond allows strong connections to grow and develop, with animals offering unconditional acceptance and affection.
