About us L'Arche in Preston L'Arche in Preston L'Arche Preston was founded in 1998 and since then we have grown our Community to welcome more people, with and without learning disabilities, to share life together. L’Arche Preston is a Community in which all its members are given the opportunity to grow, nurture meaningful relationships, and be recognised and treated as valued members of society. L'Arche Preston has two community houses in which people with and without learning disabilities live together. In addition we have lots of friends who are closely involved with the community in many different ways and who join us in sharing and celebrating life together. One of our houses, Moor Fold, is within Moor Fold Park; a beautiful quiet green space within the city of Preston. Our second house, The Loom, is fully wheelchair accessible and has a beautiful garden to rival Moor Fold's green space!
