L'Arche builds communities with people who have learning disabilities. Together with assistants, they live in ordinary houses, with choice in and access to work, therapy and local resources. The nine L'Arche communities in England, Scotland and Wales are founded on Christian values, also welcoming people of other faiths and none.

It's my birthday, and I don't need anything. No-one has to do this, but if you want to give something, please give it to l'Arche. I came across l'Arche simply through meeting a couple of people who came to Liverpool to work on local projects, some of which are developing now. One of these was one of our students, an amazing woman. The basic idea of l'Arche is to establish communities in which people with both physical and learning disabilities can have a proper voice in the way they live, on equal terms with volunteers. l'Arche has communities across the world, in some very challenging environments. There are a number of links. If you want to know more you can try
