We are seeking Support Workers to join us and support adults with learning disabilities to live the best life possible. We are 6 homes ranging from 5 to 10 people all sited in our own beautiful grounds in Dartmoor National Park, close to Buckfastleigh.
Experience is not essential as it is your core values that are important to us. If you think it is important to involve people in everything we do, to treat people with kindness, compassion and dignity, then we want to hear from you.
The service is 24/7, so you will need to have flexibility to work shifts on a rota basis, including sleep ins, weekends and Bank Holidays; frequency depending on the contract hours.
You will provide practical household support, personal support and social assistance as well as support people’s involvement in a range of activities including walking, shopping, rock climbing, horse riding, swimming, attending volunteering and further education opportunities.
It is desirable to have a driving licence and certainly our remote location will make travel to us a challenge if you do not have a car.

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.
