Nationwide have been a continual support to our community over the past year from grant support, organising a sponsored walk and providing volunteers in our projects.
The team are delighted to announce that we have been successful in obtaining a new grant! This new grant will allow us to renovate our original house that opened in 2001, to run our Art project “In Other Words” for another year and to create our very first music therapy section.
We are deeply grateful for their support which lets us continue to change one heart at a time.
L’Arche Belfast just celebrated our 18th Anniversary.
Without the dedication of Maria and Scott over the years, this journey would not have been possible, they are a continuous strength to us all. Scott is a much respected, inspirational Community Leader.
Our projects all came together over the summer months on a Wednesday evening for this new social event which was a huge success! Starting off at St Johns church community pizza event the teams walked down to the Pavilion Bar for a night of fun and laughter.
A big thank you to Brian for organising this new event.

Oct. 2018: Our much loved volunteer Andrew (wearing the hat in the picture) has returned to America. We will miss him very much, but are delighted to hear that he is continuing his L’Arche journey in Chicago.
