Camphill Communities of Ireland

“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. So everyone deserves equal respect and opportunities in life so that all may be able to fulfil their potential.”

BNest Incubator Programme 2016/2017 Participant

Our concept is to take our ‘Workshops’ of Weavery, Garden, Farm, Food Processing and Crafts and redefine them so that, while providing all the training and therapeutic benefits that they do now, they would also have the social enterprise theme firmly engaged as one of the holding pillars.

An outlet for this we hope to be a food and craft co-operative based in Carrick on Suir and the aspiration is that the whole endeavour will be owned, managed and staffed by the residents and day attendees who we support.
