Press release January 2019    Website:          Facebook: Dal Dy Dir

Dal Dy Dir is delighted to announce its new partnership with The Forest Country Cottages in Kerry to provide holidays and respite to individuals with disabilities and their families. Many of the staff and volunteers from Dal Dy Dir formally worked at Kerry Farm based at Cilthriew.  The project was closed by the Papworth Trust in 2016 but seeing the need for such a service the former staff set up the charity three year ago with lots of help from volunteers and the local community.  Dal Dy Dir @ The Forest opened on 1st January 2019 after a very successful trial in the summer, and visitors are invited to join them at their upcoming Open Day on Thursday 18th April 2019 from 10am.

The Forest is a beautiful four acre holiday complex, nestled in a magnificent valley on the outskirts of Kerry which offers cosy and comfortable cottages with all the amenities of home. Their tennis court, games room, play area, paddocks and extensive mature gardens provides Dal Dy Dir with the scope it needs to set up a programme of tailored therapeutic breaks, as well as emergency placements, for families in need of respite. With a wide range of activities, their animal therapy sessions featuring tame goats, sheep and chickens, and their forest school and music workshops gives the whole family a chance to learn new skills in a supported warm and safe environment. Everyone needs a holiday and Dal Dy Dirs innovative programmes bring families together, create memories and support siblings and the whole family in a settled relaxing non-judgemental atmosphere.

Dal Dy Dirs work is enhanced by its provision of recognised courses for young adult volunteers who can study towards a Diploma in Land Conservation accredited by Aberystwyth and Harper Adams Universities. The opportunity for their volunteers to work together on various projects to achieve a common goal builds strong teams and enables many new skills to be learned.  Dal Dy Dir has lots of projects in mind such as creating a kitchen garden, establishing a woodland sanctuary and even building a rustic bread oven for outdoor cooking with new ideas constantly developing.

Please come and see the work they do at their Open Day on Thursday 18th April from 10am to 4pm at The Forest, Gilfach Lane, Kerry, Newtown, SY16 4DW. For more information call 01686 621821
