Our Approach to Change and Development
Change happens through relationships and over time
We believe that sometimes opportunity is not enough. People can need help to take advantage of opportunities that come their way, support to believe they can achieve and courage to take a leap away from past patterns, unhelpful friendship groups and previous experiences.
At Grow to Grow, we offer weekly one-to-one person centred key working sessions to build on achievements and address barriers. We work at the client’s pace and with the wider family and network to facilitate real change that is sustained over time. We provide a totally non-stigmatising environment, based on a busy working farm, where young people are integrated into daily farm life. In addition, with the conference and study centre on site at Bore Place, Grow to Grow clients are engaged with the visiting public through providing produce to the chef and visitors. In this way young people are contributing to the community and society, increasing feelings of self-worth and belonging.
