Tiphereth has three main work places. Please click to open more details.
Tiphereth believes that “meaningful work” is important for everyone’s personal growth and development and that these ideas are as relevant for people with learning disabilities. Even for people who cannot fully work due to their disabilities, Tiphereth feel it is important that for part of their day they are involved in a setting where work is the prevailing mood and priority. To enable people to achieve this, they are active in small groups under the guidance of an experienced worker, often with the support of one or more other co-workers or volunteers. For those who may benefit from or need intensive support, an appropriate level of assistance is provided. Some of the workshops are social enterprises and sell their produce. A full programme of social, cultural and spiritual activity is offered in the workplace two or three sessions each week. Everyone has the opportunity to take workplace based vocational awards.
Applying for a Day Service Place
What it’s like
Tiphereth is a fun place to be with a wide variety of projects that may interest you. Some are outdoors in the fresh air, working in the garden, composting or the Pentland Hills. Some are based indoors working on different craft projects or cooking. The best way to find out what Tiphereth is like is to come and visit and talk to people.
How to Apply
Tiphereth has a fairly stable community of service users, but opportunities to join do arise, and you should click here to contact us.
If there is a space in a workshop, you will be invited to visit and talk to some of the people who already attend Tiphereth. After that if you are still interested you will be invited to have a “trial” where you can find out if you really want to join our community. If we are all happy with your visit (including your Social Worker) then you will be invited to join the community a few weeks after your visit. (click below for application form)
