We are always happy to welcome people who wish to join L'Arche Brecon as a volunteer or friend. We want to see our societies transformed by people with and without learning disabilities modelling a different way of being in the world, in relationship with one another.

There are lots of ways that you can get involved, including:

  • Providing support on a regular basis (e.g. driving, cooking, helping with community events, accompanying somebody to church);
  • Providing one-off support with a specific task e.g. helping to build raised beds;
  • Becoming a friend to a person with a learning disability (this usually starts by joining us for a shared meal, coming along to one of our pilgrimages, or attending a community gathering);
  • Volunteering in the workshop;
  • Becoming an advocate for a core member (supporting them to represent themselves in meetings with the Community, Social Services etc).
