Inclusion and Participation
We create truly enabling communities where people with learning disability and other support needs can achieve their individual potential. This is just as relevant now as when Camphill began over seventy years ago. In those days, mainstream society sought the segregation and isolation of people with learning disabilities. Nowadays, things are very different but Camphill still provides a model of inclusion and participation for others to follow.
Community and Mutual Support
We believe that each of us can only truly flourish if we feel part of a community. This is particularly relevant today when so many people feel lonely and isolated.
Ecology and Sustainability
Our communities respect and celebrate the natural world around them and take steps to minimise environmental impact through, for example, bio-dynamic agriculture, fair trade practices and energy saving activities.
The contemporary relevance of Camphill rests on these three main pillars.
