What your organisation does

Camphill Community Clanabogan lies on 152 acres (52 hectares) of lands in the beautiful rolling countryside of Co. Tyrone, 4 miles (6 km) from the town Omagh. It began in 1984 and now over 80 people live there in 6 households, some large, some small. In this therapeutic life sharing community, adults who have learning disabilities live and work

together with co-workers and their children. Co-workers join Clanabogan as volunteers and do not receive wages, their material needs being met by the community. In all aspects of life and work, mutual agreement is the basis of a committed and responsible involvement. In this environment every person is recognised as an individual. Although some have disabilities which present difficulties, each one is a valued member of Clanabogan Community and of the human community. Camphill Communities try to foster everyday life in as normal a way as possible; holidays and birthdays, Christmas and Easter, summer and harvest, all the high points of the year are shared, together with personal joys and sorrows, failures and achievements. Clanabogan is in a rural setting but all life's experiences are present for those who live there. They belong to the wider community around them too and participate in local events, cultural, social and recreational, and visit friends roundabout. Likewise, friends and neighbours are welcome visitors. Running expenses are financed by Government agencies responsible for the welfare of people with special needs. New houses are financed by The Craigowen Housing Association. Help with other capital projects comes from funds raised by Camphill Clanabogan, and through the Camphill Communities Trust NI fund raising department.
