Potted History of Prospects Trust

007The idea for the Prospects Trust was sown in the 1980s, when some forward thinking social workers, some families supporting young adults with disabilities and some green fingered gurus came together to solve a problem: “how can we challenge, support and grow adults with disabilities in the wider world of work?”. The solution: The Prospects Trust.

Our socially enterprising charitable Care Farm was formed in 1989 and we have been growing people and produce together ever since, from these early roots to the present day we are proud to be “Growing Differently”.

The farm was leased from Cambridgeshire County Farms Estate, the office was a 1960s retro caravan and the only thing growing was weeds. Over the past decades, The Prospects Trust has sown, grown and harvested acres of smiles, achievements and abilities. We still have that former office, but in our aim to always be sustainable, we have put it to good use as a chicken coop, the weeds are still growing of course but now amongst some of the tastiest edible organics in Cambridgeshire, and perhaps beyond.
