Home to 43 residents who live alongside co-workers and support staff, Camphill Blair Drummond provides a warm, friendly and safe living environment for adults with learning disabilities.
We are proud of our unique, family community where residents can live independently and in privacy whilst enjoying the support, companionship and friendship of others. Regardless of age, background, nationality or ability, everyone is treated with dignity and respect.
Living and working together develops life skills which allow each member of our family to grow in confidence, developing empathy and understanding for one another and forming long-lasting bonds.
Co-workers and support staff bring humour, vibrancy and fun to daily life, encouraging close and supportive relationships that make Camphill Blair Drummond truly feel like home.
Situated within the grounds of Blair Drummond House, a 19th Century Baronial Mansion are 7 houses Amber, Garden, Sycamore, Clock House, Linden, Redwood and Rowan.
Four of our houses are purpose built state of the art homes, while Linden, Clock House and Amber have all been refurbished with modern fully equipped kitchens, social areas, bedrooms and bathrooms. From the outside the houses are certainly striking. The design creates a perfect balance, achieving the need for modern accommodation whilst complementing the existing historic surroundings and rural setting.
The focus, however, is very much on the needs of our residents. Offering a warm homeliness, these houses help segregate work from relaxation and, with carefully widened and adapted front and back doors, provide easy access and a place for muddy boots. The new houses are light, spacious and airy. The interior furnishings and decorations make use of some of the produce from our own workshops, such as paintings and pottery, paired with bright colours and a variety of textures. The final result is a home that is perfect for family life; somewhere our residents can be proud of and enjoy together.
