Case study: Hadleigh Farm


The Salvation Army's Hadleigh Farm is a commercial farm, a place of natural beauty and home to an English Heritage site.

More importantly, it is a training centre for people with additional needs. Through the various activities that happen across the farm estate and the Olympic mountain bike hub, we offer training in contemporary subjects such as IT, carpentry, horticulture, catering and office skills.

Alongside vocational skills, we provide employment and life skills, including CV writing and mock interviews, as well as offering crucial work experience, work placements and voluntary work. It’s about giving young people hope and the belief that they can achieve their goals.

The Salvation Army

The Salvation Army works in 128 countries around the world, demonstrating Christian faith, hope and love through practical support and friendship to people of all ages, backgrounds and needs.

“The plans to open Strawberry Field to the public for the first time - so people can see a unique exhibition about the home, how and why the song was written by John, and allow visitors to explore the grounds as John did as a child - is very exciting.”
