Who is Lainey?

Before opening Laineys I worked as a team leader in a residential care home, Millie my dog worked alongside me building relationships with the residents, I wanted to put my love of people together with my love of animals,  which inspired me to open a care farm.

Elaine says of her work:

Laineys Care Farm was my dream and is now my passion, I have achieved so much with the help of my amazing staff team.  I love to see the students confidence grow as they make new friends and learn new skills”
