Ethos of the Organisation

Life and work at Garvald is based on the Rudolf Steiner principles of curative education and social therapy. Through working with these principles Garvald aims to meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the individuals in our care and to help each individual reach their potential.

The days at Garvald are well structured with each resident having a day programme of workshop activities, different therapies, leisure events and further education. At the weekends there are cultural events. Christian and national festivals are celebrated in the course of the year and the daily, weekly and annual rhythm at Garvald is therapeutic and reassuring influence.
