Farming Comes To You

Dates and times to be arranged to suit

Have the animals from the farm in your setting!

FCTY is a project by Heeley City Farm which has been running since 2015 were we bring the animals into care and community settings so that people can engage with animals for Animal Assisted Therapy, something that people might not be able to do. 

For more information contact Lee on lee@heeleyfarm.org.uk

Dementia Friendly Farm Visits

We are offering people living with dementia and their carers/supporters to come down to the farm and have a tour around the site and the animals in a relaxing, stress free environment

FTD carers group 2022 sessions-01(1).png

FTD Carers Group

On the second Tuesday of every month Heeley City Farm's Dementia Department hold a Carers Group for people caring for someone with Frontotemporal Dementia (formerly Pick's Disease). This is a confidential but informal space where people living in the dementia world can vent, chat to others about what they are going through and, in-turn, help people who might have queries of their own. The group is growing by the month with new faces each time. This is a great space to learn about FTD from the people who are living it in every day life. The people who know. The group is run by the Dementia Manager, Lee Pearse, with the help of his brother, Andrew Pearse, who both cared for their mother, Valerie, who had FTD for over 12 years. Lee and Andrew know how speaking to people who know what you are talking about can bring a sense of relief that you are not the only ones going through it and that is what they hope people get from the group, a social element that carers often miss whilst caring for someone whilst getting support from their peers.
