Our CEO describes himself as a chap ‘not known for his sentimentality’, although we don’t quite agree! The following story is one he heard many years ago when working in mental health. He recently referred to it when discussing how hard someone found it to be consistently kind to others. That feeling of weariness or compassion fatigue when people perhaps don’t change despite repeated sustained attempts to help. A feeling of ‘running out of kindness’, is how he described it. You may have heard the story before or a different version. Food for thought, none-the-less!
We are delighted to announce that we are now open to applications for residencies and day placements here at Camphill MK Communities!
We are currently seeking to recruit a permanent Fundraiser with proven experience of working in fundraising, sales or account roles within similar settings.
Keeping safe is important in all of our lives but it can be particularly tricky if you have a disability. Knowing how to keep safe and what to do if you feel vulnerable or see something is key to ensuring that we look after ourselves and each other.
Life at Camphill MK Communities can be rewarding, challenging and beneficial for many people. For anyone considering becoming a resident, we’ve published a series of interviews with community members about living, working and volunteering at CMKC.
