FarmAbility logoFarmAbility is an outdoor, farm-based programme for people with learning disabilities and autism. 

We believe that adults with learning disabilities and autism should have access to meaningful activities that improve their well-being and increase their independence, enabling them to participate actively in their communities.

The FarmAbility programme combines the rich ingredients of the farming environment (nature, animals, and purposeful activities) with an approach that supports people to progress through meaningful occupation.

We’re looking for a volunteer to do as much of the routine book-keeping as they feel willing
to do. If you'd like to find out more, please contact Hannah at Team Oxford.

Ideally we need half a day per week to handle:

Purchase ledger

  • Record supplier invoices on the accounting system and pass to the treasurer for payment
  • Record payments on the accounting system
  • File paid invoices

Sales ledger

  • Raise sales invoices and send to customers
  • Book payments on the accounting system
  • Monitor any unpaid invoices and send reminders

Bank account

  • Record payments made by debit card on the accounting system
  • Reconcile bank statement to accounting system
  • Bank any cheques received

Petty Cash

  • Record cash transactions on the accounting system
  • Top up the petty cash tin, or bank any surplus cash as necessary

The volume of transactions is very low. Some activities (such as the sales ledger) can be
performed working from home if that is preferred.

The most important thing we’re looking for is accuracy and attention to detail. Naturally,
training will be given, and there is some flexibility to accommodate someone (who is
studying for accounting qualifications, for example) wishing to gain experience in other
aspects of the accounting process.
