Presentation of the partner

The mission of the Asbl Accueil & Vie is to receive and accommodate adults with an intellectual disability to ensure their social integration under the best possible conditions. The organisation Accueil & Vie offers two community houses, twenty supervised apartments and a day centre for a group of nearly 50 adults (our residents) with mild to moderate mental disabilities. Those living facilities and the day care centre aim at a family and community atmosphere, where the personality of everyone is acknowledged and accepted.

The organisation's core values are the right to dignity, to an honest dialogue, to solidarity, hospitality, non-violence, and the respect of differences for all our residents. Accueil & Vie offers ways for everyone to live happily and blossom by answering to their physiological and safety needs (accommodation, health, nutrition). The residents need for autonomy and interpersonal contacts, open-mindedness, acknowledgement and sense of belonging will be met thanks to the volunteers’ capabilities and the resources made available to them. The living facilities and activities contribute to a fulfilling experience where everyone feels at home. Accueil & Vie wishes to create an atmosphere of trust and active communication between residents, families, volunteers and all the partners. The organisation helps the residents to be actively involved in the society. Our residents suffer from mild, moderate, and severe learning difficulties without exhibiting violent behaviours. For 9 years now, we have been welcoming international volunteers.

30 INTERNATIONAL PROGRAM 2021

Volunteer work

We believe in the importance of diverse social contacts for our residents, which is why we would like to welcome a volunteer for 3 to 12 months. They would spend the day with our residents in a warm, friendly, and supportive environment, bringing life and community support to our centre.

Promote our values and our solidarity commitment to disabled people.

Working and living with disabled people makes for an incredibly strong and rich experience. Taking care of them humbles us and keeps us grounded. It also helps us see them as unique individuals who embrace their differences.

For volunteers, it is also a good introduction to social work and civic engagement.

Food.

Meals are included and prepared in the centre.
