Job Information

At Camphill Devon every day is different. We tell the world that we support adults with learning disabilities in a way that respects and values them. We help people to live the life they want to live. We are never complacent, but residents, tenants, day service attenders, families, professionals, visitors and the care Quality Commission tell us that they can see our Vision and Values in the way we work.”

“Hapstead Village is a great place to live. It is also a great place to work for our staff: our employees and our international volunteers. We have been sharing thoughts on why Every Day is Different for our staff, based on our involvement in a current Department of Health and Social Care campaign of that name. The national recruitment campaign is designed to make people think about the possibilities of working in care, where every day is different.”

We are delighted to be working with Camphill Devon in respect of 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 Trustee who can demonstrate not just commitment but also relevant experience in a commercial/financial/legal/housing/health and social care setting.
