We offer an independent living service: through this we support people to live independently in their own flat or house. L’Arche provides the funded hours of support for each person, but they are able to live on their own in their tenancy. This is great for people who would like to live more independently, or someone who might find a group house setting overwhelming. Those who choose to live alone are still an integral part of the community, but have the opportunity to have their own space. With regular community gatherings to attend, and spaces to drop into for a cup of tea with friends, we strive to take the social isolation out of independent living.
