Victoria House provides a home for people who have finished college life and are learning the skills they need to expand their choices for the future.
Victoria House lies at the centre of the historic drovers’ village of Llangadog, with its shops, pubs, post office, church and businesses. Llandeilo and Llandovery are within a short train or bus ride, Carmarthen and Swansea are an hour away by train.
Victoria House is a large substantial stone built house with a courtyard and a large established garden.
The association of Camphill Communities
Victoria House is a member of the Association of Camphill Communities. The Camphill movement was founded in 1950. Camphill works to create communities in which vulnerable children and adults, many with learning disabilities, can live, learn and work with others in healthy social relationships, based on mutual care and respect.
The Barn is an annex to Victoria House. It is a small house adjoining the main building, accommodating five residents.
Victoria House and the Barn offer accommodation for up to ten residents, alongside staff accommodation in both buildings.
Each individual is supported and encouraged to find a way towards acceptance of responsibility and personal fulfillment. There is more opportunity for them to develop and practice their social and life skills, enabling them to find confidence as adults in the wider community. Integration is achieved through work experience placements, hosting social activities in the village and taking part in local events.
Bran Yard Complex is located in a large building approximately 100 metres from Victoria House, which is home to our Coffee Shop and weaver workshops.
These workshops are designed to create a cottage industry environment and are also open to the general public, thereby assisting with positive integration into the wider community. The residents also attend various markets where the goods produced in our workshops are exhibited and sold.
