Faith and Light is an International Christian Association with People who have Learning Disabilities, their families and friends.

From the needs of one family in 1968, it has grown to being active in more than 72 countries, with more than 1200 communities worldwide.


Faith and Light offers the opportunity to learn with those who are often seen as needing care without anything to give. People with learning disabilities have important gifts to offer, which are to be encouraged and developed. In these times of efficiency, competence and productivity, people with learning disabilities are still all too often marginalized. It is our experience in Faith and Light that our friends with so-called learning disabilities have profound lessons to teach us. They may have 'special needs' but they also have 'special gifts' - not least love and compassion.
