The Mount Camphill Community

It was great to hear from Mount Camphill that Pond House, their third supported living property, opened following extensive renovation in October and is now home to six young people. The charity is an independent residential specialist College of Further Education for young people aged 16+ with a broad range of special needs and learning disabilities. The latest house is in the village of Wadhurst in East Sussex (outside of their campus) and they have been able to realise their wish to create a vibrant, caring, home where some of their more able young adults can live independently within the local community and gain access to opportunities for education, skills development, work experience and personal growth. Our grant went towards the refurbishment work and although we were unable to attend the opening, we hear it was a wonderful celebration marked with speeches, bell ringing and ribbon cutting.
