Ready for a big challenge?

Our live-In assistants are a vital part of L’Arche communities, since they accompany core members in their activities of daily life and support them in sharing their gifts and abilities within the house and the larger community.

Such experiences can be hugely rewarding. But being a volunteer does require enthusiasm and perseverance. Usually our live-in assistants are attracted by community living and by a life where spirituality is central. Assistants soon discover the wisdom and unpretentiousness of people with intellectual disabilities.

In that context, L'Arche might be a challenging place to live; personal illusions and weaknesses are confronted and strengths are built upon. Are you up for the challenge?

Where to begin?
Start by reading information on each community and complete the expression of interest form (please see below) - you can prioritise your preferred locations.

Live in assistant expression of interest form

 

As a live-in assistant with L’Arche, you will experience community life and build deep relationships with people with Intellectual disabilities. You and other assistants will live and support a small number of peoples with intellectual disabilities in their own home. The below application form will ask you which Community you would like to join. You are given three choices. If there are no vacancies within those Communities, we will send your application to the Community that needs you most.
