Mossburn Community Farm is an animal sanctuary which welcomes volunteers to assist with all aspects of animal care and keeping the farm clean and ready for visitors. This can include helping with feeding, mucking out, sweeping and general tidying of yard areas, interacting with visitors, grooming and exercising the animals, weeding and gardening. There is a wide range of tasks which change throughout the year.

Here's something you should know

Info Box

Employability programmes work a little differently from other courses, especially when it comes to eligibility. For example, someone from Glasgow wouldn't be eligible for a programme taking place in North Ayrshire, and vice versa. Check the Postcode Eligibility tab in the Things to Know section to make sure this programme is open to you.
