We at Camphill follow a social-therapy approach. The heart of Camphill is our friends, while we merely facilitate things for them. Space begins with those friends, while co-workers simply work as bridges between their needs and negotiations with the world to fulfil them.
Camphill is ability-positive. Here, our friends live and work in an interdependent community, participating in the houses they live in on their own terms, while discovering the truest extent of our potential – an approach markedly different from the world at large, where our friends are forced to “keep up”, or worse, are left behind.
We work towards bridging a life of dignity and mutual respect for everybody, irrespective of their abilities.
