Welcome to Lake Farm

We are a home for 90 intellectually disabled adults who live in 7 hostels. Most of the residents work in 10 different work groups or workshops and contribute to the upkeep and running of the centre.

The village started in 1959, opened in 1960 and celebrated our 60th anniversary in 2020.

SUPPORT FOR THE LAKE FARM CENTRE FOR INTELLECTUALLY AND PHYSICALLY CHALLENGED ADULTS

Founder and member, the late Ebba Booth (1959), wrote – 61 years ago, a group of parents of mentally handicapped children got together with the intention to start a facility for their children. Their strong conviction was that their children were capable of learning simple life skills and should be encouraged to lead as normal a life as possible and not end up in big Government institutions. Another driving force was the parents’ deep concern for the future, should they no longer be in a position to take care of their children. It is with that thought in mind that we strive to uphold Ebba’s vision so that each of our orphans and residents may have a home as some of them have been at Lake Farm Centre for many years and Lake Farm Centre is the only home they know.

We need your support to ensure that Ebba Booth’s vision for Lake Farm Centre stays alive and progresses
