The Camphill Association was founded in 1940 and there are now over 80 centres in 17 countries including 37 communities across Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The communities within the Association are inspired by Christian socialist ideals and were set up to help vulnerable children and adults, many with learning difficulties, to live, learn and work with others. Co-workers assist the vulnerable members within each community, living together in houses, sharing money and making joint decisions. The communities are funded mostly by local authorities for looking after vulnerable people.
