Camphill Village West-Coast is a dynamic community working with intellectually challenged adults. It was established in 1964 to provide a unique inclusive approach to life for intellectually challenged adults, offering them purpose and dignity.
Fifty years ago Camphill Village (West Coast) was established by Julian and Renate Sleigh on farmland some distance outside of Cape Town. It consisted of a modest house set on sandy soil. This became the home for the first group of young adults with intellectual disabilities. Over time the facility has evolved into a working farm of some 220 hectares with various sub enterprises, with 15 homes and 90 adult residents.
Residents live and work at Camphill. They live in group homes, run by a group home leader, and work in one of the various enterprises on the premises. The enterprises consist of a dairy, a bakery, a cosmetics workshop and a working farm. Produce from the enterprises are consumed by those who make it, and are also sold to many shops and outlets in Cape Town. The revenue generated from these sales, sustains the organisation.
Camphill Village is now celebrating its 50th birthday. In honour of Julian and Renate’s vision and lifelong commitment, our fifty year celebrations aim to raise funds to set up a trust fund named after them that will enable Camphill to support more people with intellectual disabilities who desperately need a place in a safe and caring community, who are living in vulnerable and abusive situations.
