Welcome to Camphill Families and Friends

Camphill Families and Friends supports the life and work of people with learning disabilities who live in a variety of Camphill communities and settings, by offering advice, information and partnership to their families and friends.

We work to maintain key Camphill values.  Given the constant changes in the world of social care, and the cuts in funding, we try to keep our members in touch with their impact on Camphill communities and on the people living in them.  We do this through our website, newsletter and open meetings, and guest articles in Camphill Pages.  We liaise closely with many communities and with our members in order to influence change.
