North West Friends of L’Arche, Derry

A branch of L’Arche International – open to people of all faiths and none, this cross-community, multi-ethnic group was established in 2018 to assist adults with special complex needs in their daily activities and to provide a social outlet for them.  The North West Friends need resources to develop their members’ fine and gross motor skills and submitted an application for funding towards lacing, beading, construction sets, jig-saws, musical equipment, arts and crafts, etc.  Acknowledging L’Arche as sole providers in the city of a club for adults with complex needs, the Committee all agreed this was a very worthy cause and a grant of £800 was awarded.
