How you can help


Giving is not just about making a donation, it is about making a difference.


Community presence and community participation are fundamental in all we do here at Les Amis.

Corporate Partnerships

Investing in a local charity offers benefits to not only the charity, but to the organisation making the investment.


Without the generosity of the public, the lives of Les Amis’ residents would not be as full.

  1. Residential homes
  2. Domiciliary (support for those living independently)
  3. Respite (24 hour 'home' away from home)

But we do so much more than just care. Did you know that Les Amis..?

  1. Offers a Social Club for its residents and service-users with 87 events held in 2023

  3. Was recently accredited as an Investor In People GOLD employer

We also partner up with corporate and community organisations to raise awareness and fund s to benefit the people we support.
