“You are a font of knowledge, it is so refreshing to have folk like you”                                                                                                    Provider Forum member

We are a Charity driven by our belief that everyone is unique and can make a valuable contribution to society. We believe this can only be achieved by all organisations working together more often and more effectively.

“Having a direct input into learning disabilities governance and having local authority representatives visit meetings is very helpful.”                                                                                                                                                           Provider Forum member

Many hundreds of professionals and supported people from across Scotland know and trust us as the organisation that will bring people together to address the critical issues we all face.

“ARC are an important link between the statutory services, providers and people with learning disabilities and carers.                                                                                                                            Local Authority Joint Planning and Commissioning manager
