Prevention & Safeguarding

Safety and protection of all members and friends, or safeguarding, is important to us and is enshrined in the values of L’Arche. L’Arche International is committed to protecting all of our members, with and without intellectual disabilities, from harm caused by any kind of abuse, violence, harassment or neglect.  This commitment to promote a safe environment and culture is part of our mission: to honor the unique value of every human being.

Reporting a concern or making a complaint

We want all our members and stakeholders to speak up if they see or experience situations that are causing harm.

If someone is in danger or needs immediate support

If you know about someone who is in immediate danger or experiencing an acute crisis that threatens their safety, please call local emergency or protective services or get help immediately.
