Supporting and empowering people with learning disabilities
Les Amis is one of Jersey’s largest charitable organisations and one of the biggest respite and residential service providers on the island. 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.
Disability does not mean inability and Les Amis aim to offer the right support, at the right time, in the right place and from the right people. Therefore, they believe 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.
There are three main elements making up the services provided by Les Amis; residential, outreach and respite. The charity offer a homely environment where residents feel empowered and able to express themselves. The aim is to encourage and support the residents to make real choices that affect their lives.
