Any further information about this vacancy:

L’Arche Perth Inc. is seeking leaders with vision and drive to complement and add skills to its existing Board membership.

With relationships at its heart, L’Arche Perth is part of an International Federation of Communities where people with and without an intellectual disability share life together.

Like many organisations in the disability sector, the L’Arche Perth Board is strategically planning for changes in the sector and has a strong focus on sustaining the model of L’Arche within an NDIS funding environment.

Expressions of interest are now open for highly motivated people with significant experience, skills and knowledge – preferably in the areas of strategic planning, marketing & fundraising and finance (desirable for Treasurer).


The call to establish a L’Arche Community in Perth came originally from a group of families who had been meeting for many years to plan the best possible future for their adult children with intellectual disability. Significant progress has been made since those early days and the first Board of Management was appointed in 2009. In 2017, L’Arche Perth secured its first house which is used as a base for activities and a respite home for Core Members so they can sample L’Arche living until their NDIS funding enables them to call it home.
