Camphill Communities of Ireland is part of an international charitable trust working with people with intellectual disabilities and other kinds of special needs.
The Camphill philosophy is that no matter what an individual’s disability may appear to be, the spirit - the essential core that makes us all human - always remains whole.

Camphill Communities of Ireland has been an approved body for the provision of Social Housing for over 20 years providing accommodation for those people living in the Life Sharing communities throughout the country.
In 1940 at Camphill, a small estate on the outskirts of Aberdeen in Scotland, a small group of war refugees from Austria established a community dedicated to the care and development of children with special needs.
Camphill communities are family friendly with activities suitable for all ages.
From its beginnings near Aberdeen in Scotland, Camphill has grown to become a truly international Movement with communities in Europe, North America, southern Africa and India.
