Friend of Workshop

  • VO30256


Description

We have workshops every day in craft, bakery, estate, garden, woodwork and a small farm. There is also a seasonal candle workshop and horse riding. Friends of Workshops can join in all the activities of the workshop and they will be given support to learn the required skills. This opportunity is part of the Corbenic Befriending Project and we hope that Friends of Workshops may decide to befriend an adult with a learning disability if they make a suitable connection.

Organisation aims and objectives

Corbenic Camphill Community is an integrated community for adults with learning difficulties. The aim is that, through community living, mutual respect and concern for the dignity of each person are actively fostered by ensuring a stable and secure environment with individual privacy and promoting appropriate independence. Residents live in houses of around 10 people, including employed house parents and volunteer co-workers. They work in a variety of workshops including woodwork, craft, candle-making, garden estate, cooking, bakery and horse-riding.
