About the Association of Camphill Communities (AoCC)
The Association was set up to facilitate mutual support among Camphill Communities in the United Kingdom and Ireland, to co-ordinate some of their activities and to represent their common interests. More recently, this role has extended to provide support to Camphill Regions throughout the world and to work together with them on major projects, such as our triennial ‘Camphill Dialogue’ global conference.
There are around 60 communities in the UK and Ireland, spread across four geographical areas, which we call ‘neighbourhoods’ - one each covering England and Wales, Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland and Scotland. Camphill communities have also been established in many other countries throughout the rest of the world. Please follow this link to get details - Camphill Around the World.
The Association works collaboratively with national governments and other national bodies, as well as with Camphill places in other parts of the world, with a view to informing others about Camphill and making known Camphill’s views on key issues. This can involve making representations about legislation and other important issues that might affect Camphill places and the people who live and work there.
The work of the Association is guided by its Memorandum and Articles of Association, which set out the objectives it aims to meet, the principles under which the Association and its members should operate, and rules about membership.
