Eco Château

Innovative learning, social businesses or just a place to stay

Eco Château has a base in Sussex with additional centres in Northern France. We have been actively delivering European funded training programmes for more than 12 years. We have built a strong reputation based upon a solid track record for delivering high quality programmes with beneficial outcomes for participants and local communities.

Our Eco Château Frênes centre, situated in the serene countryside of Basse-Normandie, offers an innovative approach to work placement opportunities, training and holidays. We are a welcoming team of people restoring a beautiful 18th Century Château and our intention is to develop the ‘Eco Château’ with sympathy for both its heritage and ecological impact.

We have a focus upon working with people who have fewer opportunities and include individuals with mental health support needs, learning disabilities, educationally excluded and those facing social and economic barriers. We ensure our offer is accessible and inclusive for all demographics and diverse groups.

In addition to our specific strategic aim to develop delivery partners in Ireland, we are also seeking partners to work within the wider European context, please contact us for further information.
