Little Gate Farm is a breed apart. As a special school, we have seen at first-hand how it is enabling children and young adults with learning disabilities to aspire to and attain paid employment within our local community. This in turn is changing perceptions, stereotypes and limitations that had previously been associated with learning disabilities. Their work not only impacts hugely on the individuals who utilise their services but also their families, friends, employers and the wider community as a whole. They are a forward thinking, innovate and compassionate organisation within our town and a great facilitator and ambassador for the positives aspects of difference .
Little gate farm is a fantastic charity, supporting young people with learning disabilities to grow, develop new skills, friendships and confidence. It is the only local business I know actively supporting people into paid work. It is fantastic the work they are doing. Every person I know who goes there loves it.
I have seen Little Gate Farm grow from a brilliant idea into a thriving sussessful working farm and the most wonderful essential environment for young people who have a huge amount of skills to offer, but very little support from elsewhere!
An exceptional charity doing pioneering work for adults and children with learning disabilities and autism! My brother attends here 2 days a week, his confidence has grown and I have every faith Little Gate Farm will find him a great job😊

Little Gate Farm is an amazing charity providing vital services to learning disabled adults and children alike. The Farm is one of a handful of organisations in the UK who are actively trying to find paid employment for learning disabled adults. Additionally, as the parent of a young learning disabled child, I cannot wait until she is a little bit older and can join the Young Rangers.
Little Gate Farm are such an amazing organisation with the most amazing vision of what’s possible for individuals with a learning disability. All the staff have such a strong value base and believe in everyone strengths and abilities. I am very proud to have worked with them along their journey. Laura Davis
My son Ted goes to Little gate farm during the school holidays as a young ranger and I feel extremely lucky that he has access to such a wonderful place. I love that he gets to spend time outdoors in a friendly, safe environment, to have new experiences and to socialise, and when he comes home exhausted but happy, that's the best feeling.
My brother-in-law has attended the Young Ranger programme for a number of years. The emotional and social development he has shown has been remarkable.
We live in a society where children/ adults with additional needs can be marginalised. Little Gate Farm puts everything it can into supporting the children and adults it works with to help them access our society.
This is the most remarkable charity I have ever come across and represents the very best of human nature.
My son Daniel has been going to Young Rangers holiday club at Little Gate since it first began. He loves looking after the animals, going for walks in the woods, building shelters and has even helped to build a path. Thanks to all the staff for your excellent care and for giving us valuable respite.
The farm and all the staff there do an amazing job helping and supporting adults and young children with learning disabilities. I recently helped with volunteering at the farms festival weekend .I had a great time and was impressed with how friendly and helpful everyone was .
Just what Hastings and the surrounding areas need to support people with learning disabilities get into paid work.
There is a pick up and drop off mini bus services where the drivers are very friendly, understanding and interact with all ages with ease. The recent festival gave all involved an opportunity to get together and spread awareness to others. My view is that little gate farm are inclusive of young children to mature adults and to see so many happy people speaks volumes.
The farm and everyone that works there do an amazing job helping people with learning disabilities into paid work .The young Rangers project and holiday club for children and young people and work training are all part or the great work they do .We helped with volunteering at the festival weekend .what a great day we had helping everyone and enjoying a great fun day.
