Brixworth Nursery Farm is a purpose-built life skills resource centre that provides high-quality day opportunities for adults with learning disabilities.

The centre is situated in the Northamptonshire countryside overlooking Pitsford Reservoir, just a 15-minute drive from Northampton, Kettering, and Wellingborough.

The centre is built from renewable resources, which makes it eco-friendly and gives it a ranch style feel. It is fully compliant with current disabled regulations. Inside, the centre has large and well-equipped multi purpose rooms, which are used for a variety of sessions. A large semi-commercial training kitchen allows their customers to acquire new cooking skills.

Brixworth Nursery farm is set within two acres of grounds. As well as lawns in front of the centre, there are also two commercial polytunnels, an animal husbandry unit, and extensive vegetable beds. In addition to offering horticulture and animal husbandry sessions, the outdoor areas provide plenty of space for people to de-stress and enjoy the fresh air.

Brixworth Nursery Farm can cater for up to 30 adults with learning disabilities each day.

Groups are small, person-centred, and generally consist of between 3 and 5 clients to each staff member. Their friendly staff are regularly appraised, trained, and reviewed to assist them in being able to meet their clients' needs.

The centre's aim is to help all their clients achieve their full potential in a supportive and therapeutic environment.

Clients are funded in a number of ways. These include directly by Social Services, through their own Direct Payments, or by customers choosing to use part of their ‘In Control’ individual budget. The centre also have clients who are privately funded.
