Any further information about this vacancy:
Friends of L'Arche Perth began in 2009 with a focus on nurturing informal support for young adults with an intellectual disability and providing gathering and friendship networks for their families.
In March 2017 Friends of L'Arche Perth opened its first house of welcome in Dianella. The Dianella L'Arche house will be the focal point for our Community, offering a warm and inviting home environment to hold meetings, Community gatherings and retreats.

With the first L'Arche house in Perth now acquired, this goal is soon to become a reality.
