L'ArcheL’Arche is an international movement which builds faith-based communities with people with learning disabilities in over 30 different countries across the world.

We are working to develop faith-based support provision for people with learning disabilities in South Manchester. Our first house, providing accommodation in Withington, offers 24 hour support to four people with learning disabilities.

The way of life in L’Arche, inspired by Christian values, creates an environment in which people of all faiths and none can find their place. A place where the spiritual life of people with learning disabilities – often neglected – is celebrated and nurtured.

An ordinary house, the house in Withington is rooted in its local community with links to our local parishes, schools and volunteer networks.
