Appleseed Care Farm CASE STUDY

The Appleseed care farm has been set up in Wymondham to offer people with mental health and social care needs, suffering with anxiety and depression, job seekers, ex-offenders and those living in sheltered housing a chance to boost their health, happiness and well-being. Norfolk RCC helped with funding research and advice after the project almost stalled  at an early stage.

Greg Sadler from Appleseed explains “We knew which organisations we wanted to approach with funding applications but we were getting nowhere. South Norfolk Councillor Neil Ward put us in touch with Norfolk RCC and their input was invaluable in helping us frame our applications and presentations in a way that got us noticed. Without a doubt, the funding wouldn’t have happened without the RCC’s support.”
