Camphill provides an exceptionally vibrant, fulfilling and life enhancing volunteer experience for people of all ages and all backgrounds, but you don’t need to take our word for it. You can read stories from Camphill volunteers and from the people who have benefited from their relationships with volunteers in the following sections.
There are 11 Scottish Camphill communities in Scotland and each one regularly welcomes volunteers from all over the world, as well as volunteers who live just round the corner. The communities are very different from each other, and you might want to find out more about them before applying, so that you can decide which community would suit you best.
Our volunteers are a wonderful addition to the community, bringing their idealism and genuine interest in community and older people
