Camphill Community is a community of people with and without learning disabilities living and working together, on the basis of the therapeutic principle that working together to contribute to the immediate community and the wider community brings value and a sense of accomplishment. There are two communities in Co. Tipperary: in Carrick-on-Siúir and in Grangemockler:
In Carrick-on-Siúir, the Day service currently offer workshops in farming, gardening and estate work, cooking dinners, food processing which includes baking our dishes, drinks and jams, dried fruits, herbal teas etc., Art Workshop, weaver and B Nest Cafeteria and Craft Sales Work Shop. There is also a residential service.
Also in Carrick-on-Siúir, the Journeyman has developed as a 3 to 5 year programme for young people with learning and physical disabilities between the ages of 18 and 25 years. It provides a varied and practical curriculum in an environment in which young people can interact with their own peer group, mature and gain confidence before moving on to an adult working environment or further training.
In Grangemockler, the Camphill service is a farm-based day service where individualised support is provided to develop farm and/or horticultural skills, ranging from basic skill development to employment readiness. Access to other supports and programmes can be arranged through our partnerships with other day service providers, such as Art therapy, Music therapy, reflexology, yoga or drama.
