Alliance for Camphill

Campaigning for Choice, Community and Social Justice

Alliance for Camphill is an association of individuals campaigning for people with a learning disability and for the life-sharing values of the Camphill Movement founded by Karl König and inspired by Rudolf Steiner.

The Alliance seeks to broaden awareness for the benefits of life in Camphill communities and to promote Choice, Community and Social Justice for people living with learning disabilities and with extra support needs.

Benefits of Camphill Communities

Camphill communities offer the individual a rich and healthy life, continuity and stability, inclusion and diversity, cost effective care and planning for the long term.

~ Camphill communities offer a healthy working, social and cultural life.

~ The committed Camphill approach provides continuity based on stable relationships between the individuals living and working in the community.

~ Camphill communities offer effective governance including the core principles of care, safety, responsiveness and true inclusion.

~ Economies of scale allow more support to be provided to more people with access to more services than they would receive as isolated individuals within the wider community.

~ The Camphill Movement has existed for over 75 years, growing, surviving  and adapting  through countless changes of approach and policy and despite financial presssures and short-term political demands.
