What we do

The Country Trust supports better life chances for disadvantaged children through hands-on food, farming and countryside experiences.

Food

We aim to empower disadvantaged children to create change in their lives and in the world around them, to help them feel included and to have a greater sense of connection with their own and the wider community. We do this through food, farming and countryside experiences.

We work with primary schools with a higher than average percentage of children eligible for Free School Meals, as well as schools providing for children with Special Educational Needs, alternative providers, PRUs, groups supporting young carers, looked after children, refugees and asylum seekers.
