Volunteer with us

We live and work together in the belief that interdependence is what binds us. Everybody has their own place in the community and makes a contribution, no matter how big or small that is. We need your help with supporting those with learning disabilities, in the households and in the workshops.

As a volunteer you would live in one of our households with a maximum of three people with learning disabilities. Everyone contributes to the running of the home, making it a happy and therapeutic space.

Those interested in joining our community do not need any previous experience of or education in social care or learning disabilities. They will attend a Foundation Course which explores our way of life and the teachings of Anthroposophy. They will also be offered all necessary social care training by our care provider The Avalon Group.

“I met people of all different cultures and abilities who I was able to learn
from, grow with and create special bonds that I will have for life. I learned
to be more empathetic, loving and accepting, but most importantly to see
how beautiful life can be. “ Scarlett Durant, Volunteer
