We’ve helped hundreds of people to achieve their goals

"Arriving for the first time at Dedham Therapy Farm, we knew we had found something very special. The staff could not be more welcoming and friendly and the farm animals and dogs are simply lovely to be around. It is a real haven of tranquillity tucked away from the hubbub of daily life, and with the knowledge and expertise of the staff, along with their natural intuitiveness and kind, step by step approach, they offer a highly individualised therapeutic experience that helps build confidence, independence and skills for life. We would highly recommend Dedham Therapy Farm to any family needing that extra little bit of gentle support."
