Get involved Book a speaker Book a speaker We love to share the L'Arche Manchester story. More than that, we love to welcome new people into our Community. That's why we like to get out and about around Manchester. Our core members share from the heart, revealing to those who are open to listening, about their lived experiences. In a society where the voices and experiences of people with learning disabilities are all too often marginalised, we believe in creating the spaces for people to self-advocate and be heard. If you would like to book a speaker from L'Arche Manchester for your church, place of worship, school, or community event, please contact Julie Rigby in the L'Arche Manchester office, or telephone 0161 445 5710.
