Project Description:

Newton Dee Community is one of 11 centres established in England and Scotland by the Camphill Village Trust to provide home life, meaningful work, opportu- nities for personal growth, friendship, social interaction, education, training and cultural and spiritual inspiration for adults with learning disabilities and other special needs.

Work: Helping out whenever needed in houses, workshops, farms and gardens.Co- workers work to enable those with special needs to fulfil their potential. That means providing support at home, at work in our gardens, farms and craft work- shops, and by involvement in our social, cultural and educational activities. The work isnt simply care. The individuals with special needs who live in our Com- munity are able to do much for themselves. The role of co-workers is as enablers. Co-workers create an environment that helps those with special needs to accom- plish much in their lives, which might otherwise be difficult or impossible. One day off per week, 21 days holiday if staying for one year.
