Community at our core

Community has always, and will continue to be, central to the way Camphill Village Trust provides support to people with learning disabilities. When Camphill Village Trust opened its first community, Botton Village, it was an international community model. Today, all of our communities are outward looking and work to be fully integrated within their locality, reflecting the many changes in wider society.

We believe 'community' is about people, relationships and networks as well as place. It must continue to be at the heart of everything we do. It's about...

With an "epidemic of loneliness", especially for older people and those who need support, having a sense of, and being part of a community - by reaching out and promoting the benefits of CVT's resources, experience and skills to a wider society.

Through partnerships, building new relationships, sharing resources and encouraging our communities to become more integrated, we can enable the people we support to become active citizens. We can also reach out to more people who will benefit from out approach. We will use our resources - people, land and experiences-to build sustainable community assets and support.

Building Communities

Building a sense of community has been at the heart of Camphill Village Trust for over 55 years and this remains central to how we work today.

We believe community is about people, relationships and networks as well as place, and in such challenging times, we recognise the importance of seeing our resources increasingly as community resources.

With today’s “epidemic of loneliness” for many older people and those who need support, having a sense of, and being part of, a community is an essential foundation to having a good life.

Our strategy focuses on supporting, promoting and building a sense of community – by reaching out and promoting the benefits of CVT’s resources, experience and skills to wider society.

Through partnerships, building new relationships, sharing resources and encouraging our communities to become fully integrated we can help enable the people we support to become active citizens. We can also reach out to more people who will benefit from our approach.

We want our resources – our people, our land and experiences – to have real social impact and build sustainable community assets and relationships.
