Welcome to Camphill Village Trust.
We are delighted to advertise for a unique opportunity to become a Trustee and Chair of the Audit and Risk Committee.
As a charity and not-for-profit organisation, Camphill Village Trust has for almost 70 years, been providing a range of predominately land based “green” care, support and accommodation for people with learning disabilities, autism, mental health challenges and complex needs.
We empower adults with learning and other disabilities to lead a more connected, fulfilled lives with meaning and purpose.
We operate nine communities and a Shared Lives Scheme across England, providing homes and care and support for over 400 adults.
The Trust operates from sites situated in North Yorkshire, Teesside, Hertfordshire, Stourbridge, and Gloucestershire.
Each of our communities is different; from Botton Village in the heart of the North York Moors covering over 1,000 acres of farm and countryside, homes, a shop, post office, theatre, church and creamery; to our Stourbridge and St Albans communities that are more urban based with town centre flats, bungalows and houses.
A key part of our focus over the next twelve months, is on our ‘Brilliant Basics’ transformation plan. Executing our fundamentals using basic principles brilliantly is key to our continued success.
Basics: doing the right thing in the right way, everyday.
Education: having the right training and development, line management support and mentoring to be the best we can in our given role.
Discipline: being organised, planning well, demonstrating high professional standards at all times and being accountable.
The result of our transformation through “Brilliant Basics” will be the development of a Target Operating Model (TOM) for the future.
