Company info

Tiphereth is an independent Edinburgh-based Camphill community for people with learning disabilities and other support needs. We have three residential care homes, a wide variety of day services and a social enterprise (Tiphereth Trading).

Our vision is to integrate the holistic nature of Camphill with the requirements of delivering an outstanding care service.

We believe we achieve this through creativity, flexibility, understanding, learning and adapting in a rapidly changing society.
