The Larches Community is a registered charity established in 1995 by a group of families to create opportunities for young people and adults with learning disabilities and/or autism and Asperger's syndrome.
Celebrating our 20th Anniversary in 2015
On 15 September 1995 several families, including Linda Edwards the current CEO conceived the idea that there was an urgent need to provide services for people with learning disabilities and/or autism. From tiny beginnings around a kitchen table the Larches Community began its 20-year journey of service and advocacy for people with learning disabilities and/or autism.
To celebrate our 20th birthday we have BIG plans! We want to increase our capacity to serve, expand our presence in Barnet, create more opportunities, and achieve one of our most significant strategic goals – the provision of independent supported accommodation for adults with learning disabilities and/or autism.
WE HAVE SOME BIG ANNOUNCEMENTS LEADNG UP TO OUR 20th BIRTHDAY EVENT IN SEPTEMBER. FIND THEM ON FACEBOOK & TWITTER.
IT IS GOING TO BE AN EXCITING YEAR. WE WILL KEEP YOU UPDATED!
