What's special about a L'Arche community...
All communities are characterised by mutual relationships of friendship, care and compassion between people with and without an intellectual disability. These friendships are lived out through sharing daily life, with all its joys and struggles, opportunities for learning and celebration.
Make known the gifts of people with intellectual disabilities,
revealed through mutually transforming relationships.
Foster an environment in community that responds to the changing needs of our members, whilst being faithful to the core values of our founding story.
Engage in our diverse cultures, working together toward a more human society.
The work of L’Arche in Australia is dependent on the generous ongoing financial support of individuals and organisations.
