Welcome to Enablement Ark!
We are a care farm based in Old Whittington, North Chesterfield and we are linked to our wider community-based service that offers bespoke packages to individuals with complex needs who don’t fit into the standard packages of support.
Enablement Ark is based on a small holding, where we support individuals to build on their workplace skills, life skills, confidence and mental health needs in a therapeutic outdoor setting. We have a variety of rescue animals to care for, extensive grounds to work on, an enclosed garden for growing food. All service users are encouraged to build on their skills and follow their interests in whichever areas they enjoy.
We enjoy taking part on craft activities, building and wildlife projects once the animals have been taken care of for the day. We also have lots of equipment to encourage sensory integration, emotional regulation and a good understanding of how to keep calm and respond appropriately to our feelings. We have a specialist support team who are trained to work with individuals with complex needs such as:
