A TRUST which manages rural and urban communities for adults with learning disabilities has launched a new website so those who need to access the charity's work can do so more easily.

Camphill Village Trust, which has communities in North Yorkshire and Middlesbrough, is celebrating its 65th birthday this year and wants to ensure that those who need support can find the information they need quickly and easily.

Camphill Village Trust’s rural and urban communities offer accommodation and activities for adults with learning disabilities, mental health problems and other support needs.

From wood and weaving workshops, to farming, retail and hospitality opportunities, activities are aimed at helping people grow and develop by finding their skill.

The charity’s chief executive, Huw John, said: “We are very proud of the work we do to support people; we believe that no matter whatever a person’s ability, their voice matters, and that they have skills to contribute."

The charity's new website is www.camphillvillagetrust.org.uk with information for people living in the areas around the Croft and Botton Village in North Yorkshire and Larchfield in Middlesbrough.
