Based on the vibrant Dartington estate, work-based training goes hand-in-hand with developing life and social skills. Through being involved in a positive and non-judgemental workplace, trainees develop responsibility, self-belief and confidence.
When it was established in 2013, LandWorks operated as a self-contained project within The Dartington Hall Trust. Since then, it has flourished and evolved.
In December 2014, a Big Lottery Fund award helped secure the project’s future for the next three years, and in March 2016, it became a registered charity, marking an exciting new chapter in its development.
LandWorks provides vital tools give their trainees the ability to choose a life away from offending, to find a job and to play a positive role in their communities.
They work with men on day-release from local prison HMP Channings Wood, and other men and women serving sentences in the community.
