About us

Established in 2003, Dandelion Time is a charitable project for children and young people traumatised by abuse, neglect or having early life attachment difficulties.  Children  may be displaying emotional distress through aggressive or withdrawn behaviour, their issues having led to conflict at home and withdrawal or exclusion from school.

We provide practical farm-based developmental activities and a therapeutic service to help children overcome past suffering, develop in confidence and self-esteem and discover a new and positive path to follow. Our aim is to improve each child’s emotional wellbeing and resilience so they are better able to lead full and happy lives and be a positive force within their communities as they enter adulthood.
