15/04/21 – Update – In line with Government guidelines concerning education, WELLIES is going to begin face to face and distance learning again next week.  We will continue in this blended format for the Summer 2021 term.

We will support all our current learners through this period and have a waiting list for new referrals at this time. Please call, email or message us if you would like to attend/refer someone to our Summer programme. We will then let you know when there is availability.

Thank you for your understanding and we hope to see you all again very soon.

WELLIES is run by Julie White and Nick Platt, founders of the WELLIES Project and Staffordshire Care Farming Development CIC, a not for profit company.

WELLIES has been running for ten years and as rural business advisors Julie and Nick often help other people to develop care farming enterprises.

“I am so passionate about Wellies, the project has helped me to progress and grow as a person, I no longer sit at home unable to leave the house feeling depressed and anxious. I have learned to socialise with others, learnt new skills. I am the old me that I used to be. I do not know where I would be without this project “
