A Community of Belonging, Sharing the Lives of People with Developmental Disabilities
People who have an intellectual disability need support in their everyday lives. In L’Arche, volunteers or employees who choose to share their life ‘assist’ them in a wide variety of tasks or work in a workshop or day activity centre. L’Arche will try and find a setting that matches your own wishes and abilities, in conjunction with the openings available in the community. The most important ‘thing’ you bring… is yourself!
L’Arche is more than a service-provider. Joining L’Arche is more than a job.
