Job description

Live – In Assistant (Residential Care Worker)

Join a values led organisation and make a real difference to the lives of some of the most vulnerable in our society in the face of the global pandemic, learn transferable skills and participate in an integrated training and personal development programme.


L’Arche building Communities with Adults with Learning Disabilities

London, Bognor, Brecon, Edinburgh, Highlands, Ipswich, Manchester, Kent, Liverpool and Preston.

L’Arche communities are places of welcome where everyone, people with and without disabilities alike, are transformed by the experience of community, relationship, disability and difference.

Being a Live-In Assistant in a L’Arche community is a valuable opportunity to share your life with people with and without learning disabilities. It is not a typical job, although you will gain valuable experience and qualifications in the social care sector which will facilitate your career development. 

At this challenging time, we are looking for positive, responsible people who want to work as live-in assistants to be part of a community of people that celebrate, eat, laugh, share and support each other. We need people with a genuine desire to support people with learning disabilities, and who are willing to undertake appropriate training. This role can be challenging and demanding. You will learn a lot about yourself and other people, but above all, being a Live-In Assistant is an opportunity to be part of a global movement that will positively transform you and change the way you contribute to society in the future. We prefer candidates who are willing to commit to at least a year. No experience is necessary.

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. 

'Quite simply being part of L'Arche is being loved for who you are.'

(Archana, L'Arche London Assistant)

For more than 40 years L'Arche UK has been providing high quality, person centred care, but we're far more than a service provider. 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.
