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.


Your legacy can continue to make a real difference to people’s lives.

Paul Routier MBE

Non-Executive Director, Les Amis Limited (Chair) and Trustee, Les Amis Inc.

“It is a privilege to be associated with everyone involved with Les Amis who make supporting people in their life choices such a high priority."

Paul became involved with Jersey Mencap, campaigning and fundraising for support and services for all people with learning disabilities, shortly after his son, Simon, was born with Down Syndrome in 1977. In 1985 he joined Les Amis’ predecessor organisation, Maison Variety.

Over the years, Paul has seen the services offered by Les Amis grow to meet the needs of many more adults with learning disabilities together with their families.

The years Paul spent as Chairman of Les Amis and in other roles involved a mixture of addressing challenges to help improve lives and, most satisfyingly, celebrating successes when people achieve a significant step forward in their lives.

In 2011, Paul was awarded an MBE for services to people with learning disabilities. He was extremely honoured and maintains that he received the award on behalf of all those who supported him, especially his family.

Back to all.
