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.

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 the full range of training that will equip you to be an excellent and professional worker in social care, including SVQ qualifications.

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.

“L’Arche houses are brilliantly eclectic and that is a large part of what makes working and living in them so much fun.”

Tom, L'Arche Assistant

For 28 years L'Arche has been providing high quality person centred care in Edinburgh, but we're far more than a service provider. We are a community of people with and without disabilities living, working and celebrating together. Our vision is a world where all belong.

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.
