Get to know us

Based in the busy town of Stourbridge fifteen miles west of Birmingham we provide an approach designed to enable those we support to actively involve themselves in the local community. We’ve a fantastic range of facilities on our doorstep such as colleges, shops and leisure facilities as well as access to privately rented or council accommodation.

We own a number of properties. Most are one bedroomed self-contained flats or bedsits. We also have some two-bedroomed flats and some houses where the people we support choose to live together. The support we offer focuses upon the individual living as independently as possible within the community.

Opportunities

While many individuals aspire to full-time employment, most find that today’s job market is very difficult. And so, here at Camphill Village Trust Stourbridge, we’re very fortunate that we have a social enterprise which involves the people we support.

Just outside the town centre we have a large organic garden called Ashfield Gardens. Here we offer fantastic opportunities for training and work experience in horticulture and animal husbandry.

Ashfield Gardens is a five acre site on the edge of Stourbridge. It’s a unique and caring organic garden facility, offering a variety of day placements for vulnerable adults in a semi-rural setting. Ashfield Gardens is a mixed site, with poultry, horses and horticultural areas. The food produced goes to support Camphill Village Trust housing in the area, and surplus is sold to the local community.

We also have a large kitchen not far from the garden where we provide opportunities to gain cookery skills with many of the ingredients sourced from our own organic garden.
