Job Information

We are delighted to be helping Camphill Devon with their current Trustee recruitment.  The charity provides accommodation and support to 36 adults with a learning disability, offering registered residential accommodation at Hapstead Village in a beautiful setting on the edge of the Dartmoor National Park. Supported living is also provided in the Teignbridge and South Hams area of Devon.

People are supported in all aspects of their life including the spiritual and emotional as well as the physical health of each individual; a community life is provided where individual needs are mutually respected.

Trustees understand and support the ethos and values of the Camphill vision and are able to demonstrate an understanding of the importance of their unique approach – supporting individuals to flourish in a way that suits them.

The Board meets meet four times a year at Hapstead and the Finance and Development Committee meet every 6 – 8 weeks, it is hoped that a new Trustee will join this Committee.  We are therefore looking for someone who has financial or commercial acumen gained within a professional environment.
