Corbenic Camphill is a community for adults with learning difficulties. We live on a fifty acre estate amongst the beautiful hills of Highland Perthshire, Scotland.

At present, the Community comprises 38 residents, 4 support service users and around 70 staff and volunteer co-workers. 

We invite you to learn about the lives of residents at Corbenic and discover job, volunteer and befriending opportunities.

Corbenic is part of the International Camphill Movement for social renewal through community living.

The community is based on the principle of living and working together with those who have special needs. 

Respect and concern for the dignity of each person are actively fostered at Corbenic.

And those with learning disabilities play a critical, participative, central role in the life of Corbenic.

Ensuring a stable and secure physical, emotional and social environment at Corbenic is of critical importance to us all.

As is attending to individual privacy and promoting appropriate independence.

The challenges of life at Corbenic call for everyone to work together, give of their best.

All of us - residents, co-workers, staff, volunteers, befrienders, visitors too - need to nourish body, soul and spirit.

And to fashion creative and therapeutic solutions to challenges as they crop up

Fare Ye Well!

After 7 years of chronicling the evolving narrative of Corbenic Camphill Community, I am taking my leave.

The good news it that a more technologically up-to-date website will shortly emerge.

Since 2008, it's been my privilege to get to know the residents, some relatives too, the Corbenic staff, co-workers from every continent, local volunteers, befrienders.

Corbenic is a special place, full of light and unconditional love.

Living locally in Dunkeld, I will certainly be keeping in touch.

Residents live in one of our 7 households.

Each household is home for up to 6 adults with learning disabilities, 2 house co-ordinators and 5 co- workers..

Our latest two households, Ossian and Fingal provide accommodation for ten residents, four of whom live in semi-independent flats.

Ossian accommodates older residents whilst Fingal is the locus of the flats.

This means that we have created additional 10 places for new residents in the original 5 households, Lochran, the Garden Cottage, and the three based in Drumour Lodge, Turach, Lindisfarne and Mullach.
