We aim to maximise the POTENTIAL of each Child, Young Person and Adult in our care and will endeavour to support families, staff, co-workers, volunteers and partners of Camphill Community Glencraig in the following way:


Our main priority is to support the well-being of those in our care at every opportunity, with a POSITIVE approach to life and work, promoting a healthy lifestyle and diverse opportunities for development enabling health, happy and fulfilled lives. We are prepared to take appropriate positive risks to enable each individual to reach their potential.


We create OPPORTUNITIES for all who live, work and are part of Glencraig to develop meaningful social relationships and to experience and actively co-create a holistic approach to community life.


We embed TRANSPARENCY within our professional model of practice and funding, we actively encourage good transparent governance and standards in our community, seeking continuous improvement.


In realising the EQUALITY and uniqueness of each individual, we go beyond appreciating and understanding the abilities of those in our care to recognise their unique individuality and contribution, focusing on developing positive relationships through an inclusive team, where everyone is valued and empowered.


By creating and sustaining a natural environment, our aim is that each member of our community can grow and develop through the experience of, and engagement with, NATURE in a way that supports their development and well-being through its nurturing and restorative powers. We are inspired and committed to creating a conscious lifestyle by using our natural resources responsibly. We are actively involved in reducing our environmental impact through caring for our land in an organic and wholesome way that is respectful and sustainable.


We are committed to creating a THERAPEUTIC environment where children, young people and adults are supported and cared for through a holistic person-centred approach. This is characterised by connecting to the natural rhythms to advance the health, education and well-being of all whilst giving a sense of belonging, confidence and independence.


We champion INCLUSIVITY in all we do and create an inclusive diverse environment in which each member of the community is accepted and appreciated and feels protected, safe and secure. We are also committed to engaging with the wider community to promote cultural opportunities and innovative projects.


Accountability is important to us and we hold ourselves individually and collectively ACCOUNTABLE for everything we speak, and do. Especially for the quality of life offered to children, young people and adults we carry the responsibility for. Their best interest and wellbeing is always our first priority.
