"an exciting new approach to delivering Occupational and Educational outcomes in the North West"
Hello and welcome to Gortilea Social Farm. Gortilea is a not for profit Community Interest Company, company number NI625485 and aims to provide a place where everyone can exercise choice, independence and improved wellbeing, irrespective of ability or disability, by recognising individual needs and providing inspirational and stimulating activities. If you are seeking alternative day care provision, exploring options to purchase services through personalised budgets or direct payments, or simply want to experience new opportunities then please get in contact.
We offer a variety of activities that offer practical, meaningful and enjoyable day experiences in a supportive rural environment. Participants may look after a range of animals from sheep to cows to horses, learn to grow and cook healthy food, participate in agricultural heritage activities and undertake craft based activities – we have opportunities both in-doors and outside. Where appropriate we will assist and prepare our participants to be able to return to, or move into, voluntary work, further training or employment. This will be facilitated by our onsite Occupational Therapist who will support the participant to set a bespoke programme just for them.
We are also the only hippotherapy centre in Northern Ireland.
