Volunteering

Potential co-workers usually apply by post or email and are then asked to send a detailed C.V., a photograph, the names and addresses of two referees, a medical check and a criminal record check. After being fully informed about our life and work here, or if possible after an initial visit, they are asked to commit themselves for at least six months or preferably for a full year.

All co-works new to Camphill life are expected to attend the Foundation Course. This course is comprised of one-hour weekly sessions, visits to other centres, and occasional specific training sessions and lectures. A full year's attendance entitles participants to a certificate. First Aid, epilepsy, manual handling, food hygiene, health and safety and adult protection courses are also provided to all co-workers. All co-workers receive regular supervision from their House Coordinator.

How to apply

Please send an e-mail telling us about yourself and why you would like to volunteer including how long you would plan to stay, your previous work experiences and how you heard about us. E-mail address: office@beannachar.org
