L'Arche Belfast

Since October 2001, as an intentional life sharing community and in a joint management partnership with Oaklee Housing Association L'Arche Belfast has been supporting and empowering adults who have intellectual learning disabilities to live full and meaningful lives in their own home. As well as offering people opportunities for friendship, participation and belonging through the activities and work of the community we provide 24 hour Domiciliary Care and Housing Support Services. L'Arche Belfast promotes and ensures quality and safe practice in every aspect of our life as a community and in the service we provide. We offer life-long 24 hour care and support to adults who have learning disabilities living in their own homes in their local communities.

 

Support is provided in the context of an inter-denominational Christian community by a committed and competent team of assistants and support workers. The level of support is agreed in response to individual need and in line with individual 'person centred plans'. As well as the help that people need in self care and in the activities of daily life we offer people support in excercising choices... making decisions... having maximum control over the direction of their own destiny... experiencing appropriate degrees of power... collaborating with others positively... making constructive use of opportunities... experiencing autonomy... weighing up consequences... contributing their unique gifts to the wellbeing of the community... learning from experience... and adapting to changing needs and circumstances.

 

We are committed to being a ‘soft space’ at the heart of Belfast where we can offer hospitality to all who come and invite people into simple relationships that will transform their lives. A place where people can discover their gifts, using their hands, hearts and minds to make something together they could not create alone. We cultivate community in our gathering spaces, garden, kitchen and around our tables as we share food, fun, faith and friendship with one another.
