UCC - New Course in Social Farming

A new programme to provide farmers with the skills to work with people with disabilities has been launched by UCC.

UCC’s Adult Continuing Education and Applied Social Science departments in conjunction with the Skellig Centre for Research and Innovation came together to offer a Certificate in Practice Support in Social Farming. The one-year programme will provide students with the skills to work with people with disability both on social farms and in a community setting.

“We listened to the farming community and they wanted a course that gives them the confidence to work with people with disabilities” commented Belinda GascoigneManager of the Skellig Centre for Research and Innovation. Social Farming helps fosters social inclusion and it is inspiring to see a passionate community rapidly growing around social farming in Ireland.”
