After raising money to purchase the Norwood High Street cottages which make up the main hub of the L'Arche London Community, further funding has been secured through a major appeal to carry out essential modernisation and refurbishment of the housing, workshops and offices. At the same time, the Community's day activities have flourished through a new partnership with local people who now sell their crafts from the L'Arche shop. In return, L'Arche staffs the shop, offering further social networking opportunities for our members who help there.
