What are we Fundraising for?

Camphill MK is always looking for ways to enhance the lives of our residents, be it through new creative activities, learning to write e-mails, exploring the local area or spending time with their support worker to undertake day-to-day activities.  We would like to invite you to support our community by fundraising for us or donating funds.

At the moment, we have a very large campaign; to raise £14m so we can build new accessible facilities.  Accommodation for adults with learning disabilities is in high demand and we cannot offer space to everyone who requests it. Our population is ageing and needs more support through accessible facilities. Our capital programme will; support our ageing population, surrounded by friends &familiar faces; accommodate individuals with physical needs and those at all stages of their adult life; meet the demand for more spaces; create spaces partner community organisation can access and use.  Read all about our Capital Plans on our dedicated webpage: We are Growing!

“I love living here, it gives me great joy. I enjoy the friendships, I’m happy when things go well, even though we have some ups and downs.”

Resident Thomas C.

We also offer a variety of workshops which include horticulture in our gardens, food production and sales in our bakery and thriving vegetarian café and wholefood shop. We also run arts & craft workshops which include weaving, ceramics and textiles; we have a tools refurbishment project, as well as a technology and journalism workshop, and a theatre workshop focusing on art, craft, music and drama.

“I like being more independent, being close to my friends and while maintaining close bonds with my family. I love my workshops – the bakery and crafts are my favourite! I have made many friends in Camphill, people are friendly and help each other all the time. The community is like one big family, even though we don’t always get on with everybody all the time.”

Volunteering

Volunteers have been integral to the Camphill Movement from it’s very beginning, and here at Camphill MK, we were originally entirely run by volunteers! Whilst our organisation now has a cracking team of professional staff, we still rely on our amazing volunteers.

If you want to get involved, see the volunteering page here or get in touch at fundraising@camphillmk.co.uk. 

(Please note that due to the COVID pandemic, we are currently not accepting volunteers.)

Please note that co-worker applications are handled separately.
