Why we love it?

Fratries is a lovely shared-accommodation project for young people with and without disabilities, where they can share good times, create social links and learn to live together. Some gain in autonomy and self-confidence, others break out of their solitude and change their outlook on disability, and in the end, everyone's a winner!

Solution

Fratries' mission is to promote the integration of young people with mental disabilities and autistic disorders into the mainstream, through housing and employment.
Fratries is thus developing colivings: beautifully furnished houses in the heart of towns, where young working people, with and without disabilities, share their daily lives. Close to transport and shops, access to employment is also facilitated. On a day-to-day basis, housemates with mental handicaps or autistic disorders are supported towards independence and employment. 
And it works! Genuine friendships are forged, with everyone testifying to their mutual enrichment!

In 3 years, 3 Fratries colivings have opened their doors in Nantes, Colombes and Rennes, thanks to the mobilization of numerous players & patrons! 
Given the success of these first colivings (100% occupancy rate), and to meet the many requests from young people wishing to join a fratrie, 3 new homes will open by the end of 2024 and other projects are underway in other major French cities.  

Fratries Rennes open!
Hello everyone,
This is it, Fratries Rennes has gradually opened its doors and the coliving has been fully booked since January 2024! 
In this completely renovated and equipped coliving, 13 active young people including 7 with mental disabilities or autistic disorders are happily living together, accompanied by Joseph, the house manager, social and shared life facilitator but also job coach for the young people with disabilities. He works in close collaboration with William, Déborah, Cyndia and Léna, the carers who take turns every day to help these young people become more independent.Rapidly, the roommates have developed a close bond and, as in any other shared apartment, they share lots of good times and learn from each other!
Thank you to all our sponsors, who have made it possible for Fratries Rennes to open its doors. 
Together, we can participate in a more inclusive society.
Fratries Rennes open!
Fratries Rennes: development in progress!
First of all, thank you to all those who have decided to support us and to those who are interested in Fratries!

Some news about Fratries Rennes: this coliving that, by January 2024,  will welcome 13 young working people, half of whom are mentally handicapped or have autistic disorders.

After a good year's work, the house is currently being fitted out. We're proud to have the support of numerous volunteers who have not hesitated to lend us a hand in assembling the furniture and installing the decor.

The disabled housemates, who have been co-constructing this shared living project for 18 months, can't wait to put down their suitcases in the house. At the same time, places are still available for young working people from Rennes who would like to move into this great house and share a wonderful human adventure. Don't hesitate to contact Joseph, head of Fratries Rennes, for more information: [email protected].
