Across our eleven Communities in the UK we offer a range of high quality, person-centred residential support to more than two hundred individuals with learning disabilities.
Within our Communities we offer day support services, providing opportunities for individuals to discover and develop their creative talents and practical skills.
While some individuals wish to live in a home with other people, others prefer to be supported to live independently. At L’Arche we help people to choose a way of life that feels right for them, and for their families.
