Located in the beautiful Vale of Glamorgan an Away day for you and your work colleagues at Amelia Trust Farm gives your team a day of fresh air, exercise, team building and a fun day away from your place of work. Group Volunteering is a great way to help your local community while getting your group to work as part of a team. 

Picture of people painting a fencePast groups who have taken part in Away Days at the Farm have found that it has helped them to promote employee bonding, relationship-building, particularly across departments that rarely work together and raise social awareness. 

Participants leave feeling re-energised, de-stressed and motivated with a developed sense of achievement through doing something worthwhile for a great cause!

What to expect

We can offer a wide range of activities suited to the abilities and interests of your colleagues. You can get your hands dirty with some woodland conservation, helping to maintain our pathways and trails, or help us with painting and a DIY project in the workshops, do some gardening and grass cutting or meet some of our animals and help us clean out some of our their housing and feed them, to name but a few.

Typically our days take place from 9.30 am – 3:30 pm, but we can be flexible according to your team’s needs. 

After morning refreshments we usually kick off the day with a introduction to the work we do as a charity supporting vulnerable and disadvantaged young people and a brief tour of the Farm. We then take a look at the job/s in hand for the day ahead and gather the appropriate tools. Then it’s a quick toolbox talk to highlight health and safety practices when tackling the job/s in hand and then it is full steam ahead.

Let us know if this is something your group could support us with.

Your day can be adapted to include any training/meetings you want to include with the exclusive use of a room all day.

We encourage your group to take regular breaks throughout the day and to take some time out to explore the Farm and some of the woodland trails.

As part of your package we will provide refreshments for morning and afternoon breaks and a buffet lunch to suit all diets. 

You will have a designated member of the Farm team to act as your point of contact on the day and ensure you are well looked after.

The Corporate Away Day package is £35 per person.
