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 London, we support people in eight supported living homes, as well as several other people with learning disabilities living on their own in the West Norwood area. We also run a larger family-sized home, leading onto our community garden, where around five people with learning disabilities and five L'Arche assistants live together under one roof.

We also have a wide-ranging programme of day activities, which is open to people with disabilities living in or outside L’Arche, and we work with individuals to access employment and voluntary opportunities.

Our activities programme is based around two workshops and our large community garden, where we support people to harvest and grow fruit, vegetables and flowers. We sell some of our produce locally and share the rest between our Community houses and friends. Our talented drama group creates its productions, scripts, costumes and props from scratch and performs in local churches and theatres.
