WELLIES stands for:
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 “
