What makes us different?

My ability is greater than my disability

Our track record has proven that we are very good at spotting trainee’s strengths and skills. We build on their strengths and positively encourage them to develop their potential; at a pace that suits them. This provides trainees with a huge sense of achievement and the confidence to continue learning and developing. They soon discover that their ability is greater than their disability. Please read our Success Stories.

We do things for real

Sunnyside trainees work on contracts and are part of our thriving business: the large bedding contract we hold with Dacorum Borough Council to grow 90,000 plants every year is testament to this. Our bespoke vegetable box scheme is another example. Our trainees make organic products from fruit and vegetables they’ve grown themselves, such as jam and chutney, apple juice and honey to sell in our farm shops and market stall. We have helped vulnerable young people and adults to transform their lives. They are then able to live more independently, gain paid employment, become volunteers, and most importantly live happier and healthier lives.
