About Greenacres Farm

The farm covers 16 acres at Walford Heath, and provides a wide range of learning experiences in a realistic working environment. People working at Greenacres learn a wide variety of skills including:

  • Horticulture
  • Agriculture
  • Construction
  • Catering
  • Livestock

Our aim is to give the individual every opportunity to develop their skills.

The strong commitment and enthusiasm of the people attending Greenacres on a daily basis has enabled the unit to expand from its early development into a multi-operational business.

Education

Many of the people who come to work at Greenacres attend a number of courses at North Shropshire College in Walford Heath.

All new referrals for day services are taken by the council's first point of contact for adult social care advice on 0345 678 9044. Our advisors will help each individual access the appropriate service, as well as identifying if someone is eligible for a service within the council.
