Thinking Back, Looking Forward

The Camphill Wellbeing Trust (CWT) team are looking forward to an exciting year ahead…

During 2018, CWT welcomed two new administrators, launched its Camphill Fish fundraising project, upgraded our consultation rooms and installed new lighting for our Art in the Waiting Room project. We received much needed donations from individuals and from fundraisers using ideas ranging from pigeon auctions to roller skating!

Loss of one of our long-term funding streams this year has highlighted the importance of our Blue Door Charity Shop, its volunteers and supporters regularly raising around £60,000 per year for CWT, as well as regular contributions from the Camphill organisations in the North East.
All of the above have helped us to successfully deliver over 2300 clinical appointments and supported 185 guests in our four accommodation units for patients receiving therapeutic input.

CWT continued to provide learning opportunities for health & care students and professionals about the AnthroHealth approach. Our new 6-module Applied AnthroMedicine Training was a great success with the nurses from Simeon Care, our own CMP NHS GPs and GPs from throughout the UK.

Looking forward, Dr Stefan Geider, CWT Clinical Lead, comments: “Working with patients to help resolve illness, build resilience and maintain wellbeing remains our primary aim for 2019. With a busy start to the new year, our accommodation has had 100% occupancy and we are receiving new patient referrals daily. To meet the increasing demands on our services, we plan to recruit a new doctor to join our team in the near future.
To help patients help themselves, we are planning a series of evening talks on our approach to health. These will cover lifestyle advice areas of nutrition, exercise, sleep and relaxation tailored for the individual.”
