Howford Training is a training centre for adults with learning disabilities it was set up approx 18 years ago by Moira and Gammack Coutts.

Howford Training is situated just outside the village of Strichen, Aberdeenshire on the family farm.

Howford Training's aim is to widen individual knowledge and imaginative understanding through basic work skills in a realistic work environment

Long term we aim to enable clients to gain experiences to enable them to enter the working world as active participants in society and as responsible contributors,capable of achieving as much independence as possible.

We have 3 basic areas of training namely: Woodwork/Recycling, Horticulture & Agriculture/Enviromental

 We have a workshop where we cover all spheres of woodwork and recycle reclaimed wood into kindlers which are supplied to local coal merchants or the general public.
