ARC’s Values

We believe that people with learning disabilities:

  • should be listened to, respected and treated equitably
  • should be fully included in all decisions that affect them
  • should be involved in the planning and delivery of support services
  • can become self-advocates and lead real change in their services and communities

We believe that those who plan and deliver support for people with learning disabilities:

  • should be supported in developing person-centred values and models of support
  • should have access to the knowledge, experience and skills they need to continually learn, reflect and improve what they do
  • should be supported to work in partnership with each other, setting aside commercial interests for the benefit of the people they support
