At L'Arche we recognise and respect the individuality of the people we support. Some wish to live in a home with other people, while others prefer to be supported to live independently. We help individuals, and their families, to choose a way of life that feels right for each person who we support.

Some individuals choose to live in their own accommodation - close to other L’Arche homes - and receive support from assistants and the wider L'Arche community, while living independently.

What matters most to us is that people with learning disabilities, and their loved ones, are supported to live in ways that are appropriate and life giving for them.

For more information about how to apply for assistance, please contact your local community directly using the 'find a community' tab at the top of this page.
