Partnership and Collaboration

Partnership and collaboration with others is vital to the success of L’Arche’s mission.

The families of the people we support are important partners with us in ensuring that all our support is centred on the wishes, needs and dreams of people with intellectual disabilities (Core Members).  Families are valued and encouraged to be involved in the life of the Community and to contribute in whatever way possible. Many Community members who freely offer their gifts and commitment enhance the vision of our Communities support our Communities in many practical ways.

L’Arche also has a long history of working cooperatively with Government and Health Departments, other Non Government Agencies, housing associations and others organisations to provide good quality support, which is recognized as being truly responsive to people with intellectual disabilities.
