The Boaz Project

Who We Are

The Boaz Project is a small charity in an idyllic setting on Hill Farm, Sutton Scotney just north of Winchester. We exist to give dignity, confidence and purposeful work to adults with learning disabilities.  Our charity has a Christian heart but the people here aren’t all Christians, everyone respects everyone else. We enable members to develop independence and practical skills in a supportive, safe, friendly and inclusive environment.

What We Are Looking For:

Caring and supportive, insightful and willing individuals to help help adults with learning disabilities to reach their full potential. We run a primarily  horticultural project for adults with learning disabilities to work, do meaningful tasks and make things we then sell. At Boaz there are a lot of different tasks members take ownership of with support.

What Might I Be Doing?

You could be helping members with tasks like; collecting chickens eggs, planting up hanging baskets, making cards, painting (our Boaz made) bird boxes, chopping carrots, digging over the allotment or cuddling our baby lambs. There is a variety of things to do and even if you have no experience of these activities, the key thing is a willingness to learn and support our members as we work on projects together.

We are looking for volunteers who can commit to a minimum of three hours a week between 9.30 a.m. – 3.30 p.m.

How Do I Contact You?
