About Us

Founded in 2002 FACET is a charity with a focus on providing training and day care to adults with disabilities within the Fenland area. We are based in March with shops in Chatteris, March & Whittlesey.

We have over 118 students who attend over the course of the week, some for a single session others will attend for up to 10 sessions. We work on a 1:4 ratio, tutors will have four students each, this ensures that we can provide the best care and tuition for the students. We also offer 1-1 support if it is required, this would be carried out either by our own highly trained staff, or through the use of external support workers.

We offer three main areas within the tuition we provide. Horticulture, woodwork and Towards Independence.

Horticulture

    • Opportunities for students to develop gardening skills, taking part in landscaping work within the community.

We currently have four charity shops around Fenland, these are in March, Chatteris and Whittlesey. These charity shops offer students the opportunity to develop skills within a retail environment, which could help them to progress into working within the retail sector. The charity shops are also used to sell of the crafts created by our students, or the plants grown by them.
