Lyndridge is also in partnership with a not for profit Community Interest Company; Made-Well. The initiative aims to bring leisure and learning opportunities, life skills, training, jobs and volunteering opportunities to local, 'differently able' and marginalised people. The 3.5 acre site offers horticulture (growing vegetables, herbs and fruit), farm and petting animals, dedicated training and cooking facilities, a shop and a cafe to promote a better understanding and appreciation of food, healthy lifestyles, and to give local people access to affordable home-grown food. In collaboration with Made-well, Lyndridge also provide training and employment opportunities for 'differently able' individuals in a socially responsible manner.
