Residential Applications

In Corbenic, there is an emphasis on creating a genuine home. The three daily meals are jointly prepared and consumed within a social atmosphere. Clearing tables and washing-up are also tasks in which everyone participates. The main meal is at lunchtime and is followed by a rest-period of one hour where people are free to pursue their own interests. Mornings and afternoons are spent in workshops. 


During leisure time, residents enjoy a wide variety of social activities. Artists and musicians visit Corbenic on a regular basis. Monday evenings are set aside for individual house meetings, where residents and live-in volunteers have opportunity to share their views about life in the house and agree future arrangements, be they domestic matters, planning menus or organising activities and outings.



Weekends are occupied with leisure and recreational activities.  Long walks, shopping trips, and outings are the pattern for Saturdays, along with light household tasks. Houses will arrange outings as a house group, or mixed groups with other houses. 


Residents who wish to attend the Cathedral in Dunkeld, or the Catholic Church or any other religious denomination are supported to do so.

It should be noted that, while considerable attention is placed on regular routines – known as the “rhythms” of the day – all members of the community are free to exercise choice in the range of activities in which they wish to participate. For example, there is no requirement to attend religious services if people do not want to.
