We have three houses in the Leith and Restalrig areas of Edinburgh where people with learning disabilities and assistants live together.
Four of our core members live in their own flats in Leith, with a team of assistants providing visiting and sleepover support to meet each person’s individual needs.
We are always interested in welcoming people who want to participate in the life of the community.
There are two ways to work in a L’Arche community; either as a residential assistant or a non-residential assistant.
L'Arche is a collaboration of people's gifts, expertise, resources and time. We bring people together who are not prepared to accept the status quo, but instead are inspired to want more for people with learning disabilities, and for society. Please help us to transform lives today.
