What we do
The Children’s Adventure Farm Trust is based at the beautiful Booth Bank Farm, a 17th Century farmhouse set in the heart of the Cheshire countryside. We provide a variety of free programmes for terminally ill, disabled and disadvantaged children from all over the North West.
CAFT helps children of all abilities aged 17 and under. Children who through no fault of their own miss out on the normalities of childhood. The needs of the children visiting the Farm are complex and range from severe physical and learning disabilities, sensory impairments and terminal illnesses through to children who act as carers for a family member, to children who have already faced bereavement and children who have witnessed and been victims of abuse. For these children, a visit to CAFT provides a much needed opportunity to have fun and laughter and to simply enjoy being children.
Each child that visits us is treated as an individual with their own strengths, likes and dislikes. Disability is never seen as a barrier to participation and we welcome children from all social and ethnic groups. Our brilliant Activity Play Specialists are trained to provide fun, safe and engaging activities that suit the interests and needs of every child who visits us. CAFT is about fun for all.
We have a range of programmes to offer, each suitable for children of all ages, abilities and backgrounds. These include:
