What makes L’Arche different?

In today’s society, people with a learning disability are too easily forgotten. Many remain at risk of isolation, loneliness and abuse and live in a very small world with poor social networks.

L’Arche Communities, built with people who have a learning disability, seek to meet not just basic needs, but also the spiritual and emotional needs which we all have: to be loved, to be heard, to belong, to achieve –to live lives full of meaning and hope.

At the heart of our approach are our Core Traditions which are not cast in stone but are the symbols, rituals and language that express and nourish our identity.

Our Communities are places of celebration, nurture, activity, love and fun.

L’Arche Communities throughout the world share the same traditions which are central to our ethos and play a key role in transforming the lives of the vulnerable people we support.

  Richard Keagan-Bull, chair of L’Arche’s National Speaking Group for People with Learning Disabilities, says:

“I think all the L’Arche activities help people. Going to the Community Gathering – it makes you feel part of a bigger family where everyone is equal. No-one is left out. We are a bit bonkers in our Community sometimes. It’s important to have a laugh. The door is always open, never shut. There is always someone to talk to.”

There is an enormous need for the work and vision of L’Arche.

Worldwide over 4,000 people with learning disabilities depend on us and there are many more people waiting for our support.

Please support us today. Anything you can give will make a difference.

I would like to support L’Arche with a regular gift (download PDF donation form)
