Oak Farm provides training and work experience in horticulture and agriculture for people who may move on to permanent employment, and a supportive placement for others who, because of their disability are unlikely to seek mainstream work. Oak Farm seeks to maximise opportunities for service users and foster a spirit of integration with the local community.
Oak Farm operates an Animal Care course for people attending the farm which is run by Shrewsbury College of Arts and Technology. Students undertake their training at the farm.
Lee Chapman, Shropshire Council’s Cabinet member for adult services – transformation and safeguarding, has said:
"Oak Farm is a fantastic place which provides outstanding support for people with a variety of different needs."
