The independent Edinburgh based charity provides a community for people with learning disabilities and other support needs, offering residential and day services.
The money donated by The Barrack Charitable Trust will support the development of Hoyland Hill House, a project aimed to help people with additional and complex needs. The development will see three new supported living flats for six new residents.
Bruce Bennet, Chief Executive of Tiphereth Camphill in Edinburgh said, “We are extremely grateful for the money donated by The Barrack Charitable Trust. In living and working together, everyone can establish a sense of belonging and feel part of a community.
Our vision is to integrate the holistic nature of Camphill with the requirements of delivering an outstanding care service. We were in need of further accommodation so we could provide homes for more residents. This kind donation has helped us move forward with the development process.”
Tiphereth have a range of social enterprises focussed on developing individual’s skills. They currently have three residential homes, which provide a comfortable environment, which aids personal development for the individuals.
Chairperson and Founder of the Barrack Charitable Trust, James Barrack comments: “The work carried out here by Bruce and his colleagues enable young people to learn new skills through workshops and social enterprises.
Their creativity, flexibility and understanding of an individual’s additional support needs provides an environment that enables the residents to feel comfortable, safe and inspires them to learn.
Many of us do not realise how fortunate we are to be able to join any group or learning programme. We are delighted to donate money, which will aid a development and in return able Tiphereth to help more residents.”
