Description

Camphill Devon Community is a charitable organisation that provides Residential, Supported Living and Day Services support to adults with learning disabilities. It is a small community set in a stunning rural surroundings to the north of Buckfastleigh at Hapstead Village. Residential houses are grouped round a central admin building and workshops on site giving it a real village feel.

We offer registered residential accommodation at Hapstead Village in a beautiful setting on the edge of the Dartmoor National Park. Supported living is also provided in the Teignbridge and South Hams area of Devon.

At Hapstead people live in six houses, which provide a stimulating home environment. Through our person centred approaches everyone is encouraged to live an active and fulfilling life. Our aim is to support people to achieve the lifestyle they want to have, benefiting from a sense of community where people can support and be supported by others.

As well as supporting people at Hapstead, Camphill Devon also supports people who have their own tenancies in the local area.

Camphill Devon is a registered charity and is independent from any other organisation with our own governing body. We are a member of the Association of Camphill Communities and are part of the worldwide Camphill movement. The movement was founded in 1940 when Dr Karl Koenig and his co-founders developed a mutually-supportive model for community life based on the principles of the late Dr Rudolf Steiner.

In common with other Camphill Communities we support people in all aspects of their life including the spiritual and emotional as well as the physical health of each individual; and in providing a community life where individual needs are mutually respected.
