Our community has been a home for people with social, emotional, intellectual and learning disabilities in the heart of Scotland since 1978, providing day and residential care in beautiful surroundings near Dunkeld, Perthshire. One Care Inspectorate report about Corbenic stated that: “the service does very well in providing a ‘holistic’ approach...this means that it considers all aspects of a person’s life, including physical and mental health, realising potential, promoting independence and promoting choice and dignity.” They have given us 'Good' or 'Very Good' gradings since November 2012. This approach is at the heart of our ethos and represents what we hope to achieve within our community.

We are asking for support that will help us build a new community centre and enhance our day care provision. In recent years Corbenic has grown to a size where we no longer have an indoor space for our whole community to meet together. We want to create a central place that will be at the heart of our community, somewhere to be at leisure and which will facilitate the meaningful activities for residents and those attending during the daytime.

This calls for new buildings and our design team has been busy taking our ideas and creating a concept that will create:

  • A 150-seating space, in which the community can meet, celebrate and share cultural events amongst themselves and with families and friends
  • Purpose designed workshops for our bakery, laundry and craft activities
  • A gathering space/community heart
  • A structure that enhances the surrounding community and natural beauty
  • A sustainable and energy efficient design and build
  • A multi-functional space that will be accessible to our wider local community

We estimate that the overall cost will be around £3,100,000 and this summer we will launch an appeal with the intention of starting the building work in Spring 2020.

Any donation, of whatever size, is vital and we will be very grateful for your support. You would help to further enhance the lives of some lovely people and, by making a gift, also encourage others to do the same.

A heartfelt thank you in advance on behalf of all the residents at Corbenic Camphill Community.
