L’Arche Highland is a community of more than 100 people with and without learning disabilities. We live, work and celebrate together and have been based in the Highlands of Scotland near Loch Ness for over 40 years.
As a volunteer assistant, you and the team will help to support 20 people at home with learning disabilities, providing registered care at home and in supported housing. The community currently has 3 houses and are building a fourth. you will also help in the specialist day services where workshops offer craft, woodwork, candle making and life skills.
Volunteer live-in assistants provide individual and social support of people with learning disabilities, enabling them to become more independent in areas such as personal hygiene, dress, health needs. You will help with your clients' leisure, social, practical and spiritual needs, helping to nurture their ability to make choices and decisions. You can see some of what we do on our website:
