Then this is the job for you!

L’Arche is a worldwide federation of people, with and without learning disabilities, working together for a world where all belong.  


L’Arche Ipswich is one community in L’Arche; an international organisation operating 153 communities in 38 countries, and on five continents.


For this role we are looking for someone who can lead and motivate a small house of assistants and core members to build a sense of community, encouraging each person in the house – with or without learning disabilities - to have a voice, share their views, have choice, and feel at home.


Upholding the values of L’Arche, you will focus on, supporting and facilitating the house and it’s daily, weekly and monthly patterns of activity, as well as ensuring everyone in the house is supported to maintain their interests, their social life, their family relationships and involvement in the wider L’Arche Ipswich community.


The Team Leader will ensure that we provide high quality, person-centred care and support, supporting practical, social and spiritual needs, leading the service delivery in the house in line with L’Arche’s values and standards, and the requirements of the Care Quality Commission [CQC].


The house, which will be led by the Team Leader, provides supported living and is a home to 3 people with learning disabilities; 2 men and 1 female, 1 Live-in assistant, and 1 part-time live-out assistant.  The house is very close to Ipswich town centre and the other 2 L’Arche Ipswich houses and backs on to the biggest and most beautiful park in Ipswich.


This role is an exciting development for our community and would be ideal for someone with experience in supporting people with learning disabilities, who is looking for the next step in their career. 


This role is Live-in, full time, 44 hours per week; full-board and lodgings provided. This role is offered on an initial 12-month fixed term contract (with view to extend) and is on point 1 of the L’Arche salary scale for Live-in Team Leaders; £5,589 p.a.
