ARC facilitates a number of workstream meetings to discuss areas of common interest, as identified and requested by our members. These action-orientated groups are open to all member organisations and are attended by Chief Executives, Senior Managers through to frontline staff.
Current workstream themes include:
Workforce Development, established since 2008 affords opportunities for managers, HR professionals and trainers to meet guest speakers and decision-makers from a range of statutory and non-statutory agencies involved in the development of the work force.
Flexible Lives Special Interest Group
In 2016 the previous Day Opportunities and Support for Living Special Interest Groups merged in acknowledgement that many of the issues discussed at these two meetings impacted on enabling and promoting the need for people with a learning disability to have a meaningful life, based on their individuals choices. This meeting brings together operational managers to identify/address current issues & learn from shared experiences of best practice.
RQIA & ARC Executive Exchange
RQIA & ARC Executive Exchange, established in 2004 with ARC acting as an honest broker to develop a good working partnership between RQIA and senior managers from member agencies. This offers the opportunity to highlight and address current strategic issues faced by many of the members’ services.
Senior Managers Think Tank
Senior Managers Think Tank, established in 2006 to enable leaders thinking outside the box in managing organisational change required to deliver person-centred services. This offers the opportunity of learning best practice models from other leaders and collaborative action on agreed initiatives.
