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.

Shaun Findlay

Managing Director

“I am very proud and honoured to work for Les Amis and feel the organisation will continue to develop and grow, benefitting the people we support and the people who work with, and for, us.”

Starting in 2008, Shaun had a long-term vision for Les Amis; enlightening islanders to the services offered by Les Amis and changing public perception regarding the needs of the people who benefitted from Les Amis’ support.

Shaun served in the British Army for 14 years, supporting initiatives in both Bosnia and Cyprus. Upon leaving service, Shaun embarked on a new career path by completing a diploma in Community Studies, focussing on the charitable sector, and subsequently went on to work in the North-East of England in Community Safety Programmes which were recognised for their achievements by being awarded Beacon Status by the UK government.

Initially coming to Jersey in 2005 as deputy manager at Brig-y-Don childrens charity, Shaun is now a Chartered Fellow with the Chartered Management Institute and enjoys the challenges that being the Managing Director of Jersey’s largest charity brings with the role.

Back to all.
