At the heart of our Community is the support we provide to people with learning disabilities. We have a long history of working with social services and social work departments, health authorities, primary care trusts, registration and regulatory authorities, housing associations and others, to provide high quality support that is recognised as being truly responsive to people with learning disabilities.

In L’Arche Edinburgh, we support people in 3 supported living homes, as well as 4 other people with learning disabilities living in their own flats off a common stair.

We support people to enjoy many different activities in the local community from employment and voluntary opportunities, to laughing yoga and music therapy. We run our own art, dance and music groups, and a weekly drop in group where we offer lunch and an inclusive spiritual space to anyone who wants to join in from our local area.

Our office is a hub where community members can pop in, have a chat and a coffee, help with general office work, or feed the fish in our aquarium.
