Our Story

For over 30 years, Tigh a’Chomainn Camphill has provided specialist independent care to adults with complex needs including learning difficulties, autistic spectrum conditions and disabilities.

As a Camphill Community we work from a strong set of values and with a clear ethos.

Our provision offers a unique residential placement. Applications are welcome year round. If you would like to find our more we welcome visits from potential members, family members and social workers.

Our Community provides a home for adults with special needs in Aberdeen. Our aim is to support individuals in exploring their personal potential and their limitations, so that they may find purpose, direction and a sense of fulfilment in their lives.

We are located in Peterculter, about eight miles from the centre of Aberdeen. Once an outlying village, Peterculter retains much of its village atmosphere. Our homes are in a residential area within walking distance of all local amenities – shops, library, banks, post office, village hall – and we are on the route of a frequent bus service to the city centre.

Work and home life are seen as distinct. Residents go out five days a week to work, training schemes or further education. Involvement in social and cultural activities outside Tigh a’Chomainn is encouraged and supported.
