On 22nd June only they will be doubling your donations. If you’d like to donate £5, they will double it, if you want to give £25 they will double it too but only up to £25, so if you’d like to donate a very generous £100 +, please do so £25 at a time.
Any donations are always welcome and the support you provide helps us to create a living and working community where people with learning disabilities, and those who support them, reach their full potential in the spirit of lifelong learning.
We have launched the T-shirt Yarn Project!
Inspired by recycling, up-cycling and craft, we are using donated T-shirts to create yarn in order to make new handmade products.
Part of the T-shirt Yarn Project will see the launch of an in-house pop-up ‘Arts Café’ set up by and for residents, co-workers and volunteers every Friday afternoon. All participants will meet to create craft relating to arts therapy. It will be a time to meet and chat over a cup of tea and create a little magic.
We will use the stress-relieving techniques of crochet, knitting and braid making to create the large rug for our ‘social room’ and because making a braid is one of the simplest techniques, everyone with various abilities and disabilities can get involved.
The inspiration behind the T-shirt Yarn Project also comes from Knit For Health and Wellness study and book by Betsan Corkhill, which discusses the therapeutic benefits of knitting. By reducing stress each Friday afternoon, Camphill Communities Milton Keynes will be knitting for health.
If you would like to get involved, please drop in your old T-shirts to our onsite Shop and be a part of this truly inclusive community project.
Our community is currently seeking a Care & Support Services Manager (Registered Manager) with experience of working in a management role in a care/supported living setting ideally for adults with learning disabilities. You will have proven knowledge of applicable legislation and best practice alongside a commitment to ensuring our residents are supported to participate fully in their community and make decisions about their own life.
