Job description

L’Arche UK is part of an international federation of intentional communities where people with and without learning disabilities live together, working for a world where all belong.

In a world that rewards success and winning, L'Arche communities are places where people can take time to explore who they are, not just what they can do. They are places of welcome where people are transformed by the experience of community, relationship, disability and difference.

'Quite simply being part of L'Arche is being loved for who you are.' Archana, L'Arche London Assistant

We're looking for positive, responsible people who want to work as live-in assistants to help create a community that really tries to value people for who they are and what they can do.

'Living in L'Arche is like holding a mirror up to yourself and seeing the very best and sometimes the very worst of yourself reflected back.' Amy, L'Arche Manchester Assistant

We work hard to look after everyone in our community providing a programme of opportunities for professional and personal development including individual and team reflection, retreats and an assistants training programme (including sign language, personal care and understanding autism) and a programme of opportunities for professional and personal development.
