Gilead Foundations Charity

Gilead Foundations Charity offers accommodation at Risdon Farm in Devon, for people who require support and supervision to overcome issues in their life that relate to addictions & compulsive behaviours many of whom have experienced hardship, poverty, distress and homelessness.

Support is offered to residents through living in a family environment which is based on Christian principles. This enables the individuals to feel safe and able to receive the support needed to bring change to their lifestyle.

The accommodation is a purpose built, 8 single bed lodge property with shared kitchen and communal facilities. The property also provides `live in' staff accommodation. 

Gilead’s main aim is to help residents maintain long term stability and independence.

Residents are given opportunities to learn basic work ethics in the various practical areas such as kitchens and domestics and to have access to a variety of agricultural work experience - such as animal husbandry and general farm work including milking, gardening and maintenance. We also provide online training in basic courses which will prepare and equip the resident for future independence and career development.
