Opportunities at Lambourne End

Lambourne End currently have free spaces for young people aged 16-25 who reside in West Essex to work on or study land-based industries such as horticulture, animal care and estate management.

These opportunities are aimed at disadvantaged and vulnerable people, including those with learning difficulties, special educational needs, recovering from mental illness or at risk of becoming NEET (Not in Employment, Education or Training) Participants can attend for 1 or 2 days a week, but this is flexible.

During the programme, participants will develop independence, 'pre-work' and life skills. They are supported to self-appraise their performance as they progress, and take an active part in decision making. They will increase their resilience to manage life events. This will compliment any existing accreditation that individuals are working towards.

Most importantly, young people will be equipped with skills to:

• feel good about themselves

• have the motivation to achieve more for themselves

• communicate more effectively

• reflect on and manage their behaviour

• deal with conflict in a more positive way

• cope better under stress

• carry out everyday tasks such as cooking, budgeting, organising themselves

• keep themselves fit through the physical exercise of gardening activities

• understand about healthy eating, the importance of good sleep and exercise

• take a more active part in family or community life
