Every legacy gift, no matter what size, will help make a difference to the lives of people L’Arche supports.

Leaving a gift in your will to L’Arche will help to ensure that some of the most vulnerable people can experience a place of belonging and fulfilment. Whilst many organisations exist to offer support to people with learning disabilities, few do so with the L’Arche mission of an inclusive community and culture of shared lives between people with and without learning disabilities.

We do understand that your family and loved ones come first, and that your personal circumstances may change over time. If you are able to share a gift, however small, we would be so grateful to receive it. With support from our generous donors, we are able to make a profound and lasting difference to the lives of people with learning disabilities in L’Arche communities.
