Welcome to Wild Mind Well-Being in Buckinghamshire. From our farm between the villages of Bourne End and Flackwell Heath we provide inclusive opportunities for individuals facing diverse health & social care challenges. Our offerings encompass Farm Therapy, Social Care, Work Preparation, Well-Being Coaching, and Educational placements.
Our care farm provides a nurturing and supportive environment tailored for young individuals who may encounter difficulties in traditional learning settings. At Wild Mind Well-Being, young people have the opportunity to enhance their health and well-being while acquiring valuable qualifications and skills. Clients enjoy the therapeutic effects of spending time outdoors, working with a mentor, learning new skills and enjoying time with our rescue animals. For some, our care farm serves as a stepping stone back to mainstream education or towards work.
Referrals to our care farm come from various sources, including schools, local authorities, parents, and other agencies. These referrals address a range of needs, such as learning difficulties, disabilities, behavioural challenges, or mental health concerns.
Whether integrated into Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND), incorporated into an Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP), or utilised as Alternative Education Provision, our care farm provides a holistic approach to well-being, fostering growth and development in a unique and supportive setting.
We also offer Animal Assisted Therapy Sessions to adults.
At Wild Mind Well-Being we support people in their journey to becoming the best version of themselves. We offer support through nature-based care farming and animal assisted therapy. By being part of a nurturing community on the farm we work to boost social skills, increase independence and form a greater sense of self through 1:1s and group sessions.
We focus on supporting physical, mental and emotional well-being through caring for our rescue animals, farm based activities or getting involved in our Community Shed. Our approach is holistic and tailored to each individual, with a variety of activities and interventions that help to bring about positive change.
Our goal is to provide a safe, supportive, and inspiring environment to help you to reconnect with yourself, nature, and your community.
We work with a range of people from adults to primary school aged children.

We also offer the ASDAN Short Course in Animal Care. This course is multi-level and tailored to each individual. The course can accredit between 10 and 60 hours of learning. This course is designed for young people of all abilities, mainly aged between 13 and 25 years but can be adapted for adults and younger learners where appropriate.
Our young people can incorporate the Animal Care certification into their time at the farm and gain accreditation at the same time as experiencing the therapeutic benefits of being part of our care farm.
At Wild Mind Well-Being we have a wide range of rescue animals including goats, sheep, a pig, an owl, dogs, cats, horses, ponies, emus and other poultry. Our clients get hands on with all the animals including feeding, mucking out and general husbandry. We also get to engage in practical skills such as fencing, woodwork, building and general farm maintenance.
Our setting is always evolving which makes it an exciting project for our clients. We enjoy welcoming clients to be part of our community & value their input & ideas- many of which are able to be implemented during their time with us.
