Loch Arthur is a working Community which includes men and women with learning disabilities. There are eleven houses in which altogether more than 75 people live, including about twenty-eight people in supported tenancies. There is a farm, a large garden, a creamery, a bakery, craft workshops and a thriving farm shop and cafe.
Loch Arthur is a shared way of life in a modern rural Community which offers security as well as support for each other through the challenges of daily life. We are committed to the fulfilment of the individual through a diversity of relationships and activities which create authentic social integration.
In addition to those with disabilities who make their home here, there are the people with a variety of experience who carry the on-going responsibility for the households, the working life and the general running of the Community. There are also a number of young volunteers who join the Community for a year or so.
We hope that Community life will enable each person who comes here to give and to receive in ways which enhance their personal development.
We all need a place where we feel at home. That is what you will find in the houses at Loch Arthur. Each house has its own character and feel, but what is common for all of us is the sense of a place where we belong, where we are accepted, which is warm and welcoming.
