The project works with disadvantaged groups and uses the farm and rural environment to help improve their wellbeing and opportunities. Working with a range of agencies and social services, vulnerable members of the community are given the opportunity to take part in a carefully structured programme of farm-related activities as part of their care, rehabilitation, therapeutic or educational programmes.

Laura Schwab, Jaguar Land Rover UK marketing director, said: “Building on the success of the first year, where five recipients of the inaugural bursary made a tangible difference to communities across the country, we are delighted to find a further five truly worthy projects which will no doubt benefit and grow with the provision of a Freelander 2. We are looking forward to seeing the benefit that our vehicles can bring.”
