Camphill was established to work with people who have intellectual disabilities - and this is still its principal role today. From the outset, the intention was to do this work not as a 'job' in the usual sense of the word, but as a way of life.

The Camphill ideal is of a community life where each person according to ability contributes what they can towards the well-being of their fellows.

Our Communities are formed of groups of people, some with special needs or disability, some more able, who live, work and learn together, in an atmosphere of mutual respect.
