Our community has been a home for people with social, emotional, intellectual and learning disabilities since 1978, providing day and residential care in beautiful surroundings near Dunkeld, Perthshire. A Care Inspectorate inspection reported 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.” This approach is at the heart of our ethos and represents what we hope to achieve within our community.

Corbenic has grown to a size where we need purpose-designed space for work and leisure. The best solution is to build a new community hub which will be a fully accessible cluster of buildings around a landscaped village green. The new facilities will help develop skills, encourage social interaction and offer new opportunities to staff and residents, all within a safe, supportive environment. Our poetry path (used by tourists and the local community) will pass by the site and we will have facilities that can fully house events that are open to local people as well as visiting friends and families.

We will have:

  • 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 this will cost around £3,200,000, although this is subject to change as planning proceeds. Any donation, of whatever size, is vital and we will be very grateful for your support. Gifts will enhance the lives of some wonderful people and, by making a gift, our donors will encourage others to do the same.


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