Our Story

Desire Change is a Community Interest Company growing within the heart of rural Lincolnshire. We have the desire and passion to empower, equip and facilitate change in the lives of those that have been affected by crisis and chaos and the hurdles of everyday life. We offer a tangible and innovative GREEN toolkit of opportunities that is individually chosen and tailored for each person to meet their needs whilst promoting the benefits to mental and physical wellbeing. Our underlying ethos of recycling, reusing and sharing resources, knowledge and skills ensures that our carbon footprint does not grow with our organisation. We are currently working towards Green Accreditation – Investors in the Environment Award. 100% of our trading profits are reinvested into providing and developing the services and facilities we offer.

The Vision

Our vision is to create an eco-sustainable rural retreat that is not only what the community vitally needs but is also what it desires. We have combined many years of experience, knowledge and wisdom with many months of talking to people, getting to know the hurdles local people face and most importantly developing an understanding of the things that would help ease the pressures in all of our lives. This research has led to a 10 year development plan for Dairy Farm – Nature’s Nursery of Life. A beautiful tranquil setting offering an abundance of benefits to the communities that surround it. A training ground to build confidence and cultivate life skills and qualifications. Our desire is to transform this derelict farm into a therapeutic, relaxed, rural retreat that allows people time out from everyday life in a supportive environment to gather their thoughts, assess where they are in life and put into place plans for reaching those desired changes. Enriching lives and empowering hopes, dreams and opportunities.

Facilities will include indoor and outdoor relaxation areas, library and information source, gym and spa, study and therapy rooms, arts and crafts studios, training kitchen and teaching gardens, indoor and outdoor accommodation and dining facilities.

As a new venture, we are starting from scratch and need a variety of things to make the vision reality. We are now looking for individuals, businesses and organisations to show their support and get involved. Maybe you have some tools or materials that you no longer need....maybe you could provide advice on policies, procedures or just how to do something. We love to take old things and give them a new lease of life, whatever you are thinking of sending to landfill, give us a bell, I’m sure we could repurpose it!

The Big Barter

We believe that one person with a ‘pocket full of money’ could not achieve this vision alone. It will take a whole community working together, each sharing a little of what they have to benefit all. If you’re an individual or business that would like to get involved, there are so many different ways in which we could make each other’s lives a little easier.

Let’s have a chat and see if we can help you in return…
