Scottish communities

There are 11 Camphill communities in Scotland, which support more than 500 people with learning disabilities and other support needs. About two thirds of these people live in communities, with the others coming in to work during the day. 

All Camphill communities focus on the needs of individuals, and how people can be supported and encouraged to develop through community life.  At the same time, each Camphill community is slightly different, in the people they support and in the things they offer. 

Joining a Camphill community

If you or someone you know is interested in joining a Camphill community, either as a live in member or to be supported during the day, it will be important to work out which community is right for you.  The best way to experience a Camphill community is to visit them, so do please get in touch with any community that interests you.
