The Prospects Trust

Idea

The Prospects Trust is a well-established, socially-inspiring charitable care farm based in rural Cambridgeshire growing opportunities for people with disabilities. The Trust wishes to create Posh Pods: self-contained, accessible holiday pods, maintained by people with additional needs for holiday makers with additional needs.

People

Posh Pods will draw upon the talents of the existing collaborative staff and trustee team at The Prospects Trust. In the development phase two of the existing co-managers will be spearheading the venture. Maz Baker is our Development Co-manager and creative ideas person, with a proven track record in fundraising large-scale capital projects (even a tractor). Rhian Cornell is the charity's Executive Officer: with a constant eye on the bottom line, she will ensure that their dream venture becomes a Quick Book reality.

At the physical development stage a wider cohort of their staff and co-worker team will be instrumental, involved in the creation of the pods, the landscaping and eventually the hosting and housekeeping of each unique accessible holiday let.

Impact

Posh Pods at Prospects Trust will grow a different way to holiday for families with additional needs.

The venture will be developed in consultation with people with additional needs, maintained by people with disabilities for holidaymaking families who need a real accessible taste of the rural countryside. The rental income will be ploughed back into the running of the 18-acre organic care farm, ensuring more supported placements are sustained and the organisation is developed to be a market leader in adult social care training and provision.

Get in touch

The Prospects Trust would love to hear from similar initiatives or organisations working with people with disabilities to shape their new venture. They are also seeking business support especially in new technologies to make their charity more accessible, marketing and potential capital investors. As a wider organisation, The Prospects Trust would welcome new mentors and trustees from the business sector.
