Les Amis is one of Jersey’s largest charitable organisations and one of the biggest respite and residential service providers on the island. Established in 1975, Les Amis is now made up of a team of around 200 employees. Les Amis staff are wholeheartedly dedicated to ensuring the very best quality of care and support for the people who need it; from the residents, their families and the wider community in Jersey.
There are three main elements making up the services provided by Les Amis; residential, outreach and respite. Our aim is to provide a full range of services as diverse as the requirements of our clients. Les Amis offers a homely environment where residents feel empowered and able to express themselves. Our aim is to encourage and support our residents to make real choices that affect their lives.
It is important to understand that in many circumstances people with learning disabilities can achieve their goals, be it living reasonably independently to living with gentle support and care. Disability does not mean inability and at Les Amis we aim to offer the right support, at the right time, in the right place and from the right people.
The team that drives Les Amis are more than just staff, we strive to embody the charity's name. With dozens of roles to fill, the ‘amis’ (friends) work together like a well oiled machine, making sure that every aspect of the Les Amis service meets the expectations of our clients, residents and the families who rely on us. Les Amis staff are a beacon to the people we help - enabling people with learning disabilities to shine.
Les Amis’ core team of staff are featured here, but in reality Les Amis is made up of lots more staff, volunteers and supporters who work together to drive the Les Amis services. One thing that everyone at Les Amis has in common is that they love their work and are proud to be part of such a life changing service in Jersey.
