Growing for the Future

“The Happiest Place on Earth”

Who are we?

At Dale Farm we are a happy community of supported people, staff and volunteers. We are a people centred service for adults with learning and/or physical disabilities; we provide people with disabilities meaningful work and opportunities.

Equality, diversity and inclusion is at the heart of everything we do. We aim to assess, advocate, support and provide training for everyone at the farm. We see ourselves as one happy farm family where anyone is welcome no matter their ability or disability.

Funding and Providers

Dale Farm is funded in two ways, through Dale Farm Trust and Wirral Evolutions.

Dale Farm Trust

Dale Farm Trust (registered charity 1156516) raises money from our products, services and from kind donations. All money raised by the trust supports projects, maintenance and materials needed for the effective running of the farm.

Without your help and support we would be unable to provide such a diverse and comprehensive service to the people we support. We would like to give our thanks to all those who support us, we could not do it without your help.

Wirral Evolutions

Wirral Evolutions provides personalised day services and opportunities for adults with a wide range of learning and physical disabilities. Wirral Evolutions is part of Wirral Borough Council (WBC) adult social care dept. The WBC pays staff salaries, maintenance and provides support for the farm; without this funding we would struggle to provide ample support for people’s needs.

Wirral Evolutions and Dale Farm work to enrich the lives and opportunities for people with learning and physical disabilities through maximising their personal potential. It is their mission to work together to inspire lives, remove barriers and widen horizons for those we support while: 

  • Enriching Lives
  • Improving Wellbeing
  • Developing Individuals
  • Being Community Integrated
