Brecon is a friendly Market Town which we are proud to call home, nestling in the beautiful Brecon Beacons National Park. Bannau Brycheiniog is its name in Welsh.

Although Brecon is only a small town, it is full of independent cafes, galleries, a cinema, a cathedral - and is known for the famous Brecon Jazz Festival. We sit on the River Usk and have a canal running through the town too!

The L'Arche Community in Brecon includes around 20 people with learning disabilities, who we support at home, as well as volunteers, friends, neighbours and assistants. Since our Community opened in 1988, we have built deep links with our neighbours, local churches and other community groups.

We run a workshop located in the buzzing town centre, which is home to Rebound Books - a project where we repurpose used books and turn them into beautiful diaries and notebooks. In 2023, Rebound Books received a sustainability award at the world-renowned Hay Festival.
