Visitors from care groups and other organisations enjoyed a tour of Rhubarb Farm, at Langwith, which helps support vulnerable people.

Rhubarb Farm hosted a special tour for community, care and other organisations from the region to help refer those in need to the Langwth-based facility so they can take advantage of training and volunteering opportunities.

Representatives from Bassetlaw Mind, Hope Springs in Chesterfield, Sheffield NHS, Derbyshire County Council’s Disability Service, Langwith Parish Council and Mansfield CVS were all shown round the farm.

Jennie Street, managing director of Rhubarb Farm, said: “All of the groups that attended the tour were enthused by what we do here supporting people with long-term health and social issues. They all work with the type of people we support but may not have been aware of what we do or how we work, so it was a great opportunity for everyone concerned. It is certainly something we will be looking at doing again in the near future.”

Rhubarb Farm works with a range of vulnerable people facing personal challenges and provides training and volunteering work.
