How to Join the ARC Partnership

Process for joining the ARC 2018/2019 Partnership:

To join the ARC Partnership, please complete the following 4 forms, you will also find useful information on the Skills for Care documents listed in the Guidance and Documentation section.

The main page is for your establishment details if just one establishment, or for the Head Office/main establishment of a group. The additional sheets are to record details where there are multiple establishments/worksites, each with their own NMDS number, under which you anticipate you will claim WDF for the employees through ARC. An establishment can only be a member of one WDF partnership at a time.

  • BACS Funding Form 2018 – 19 – if your organisation has more than one bank account, we require one BACS form for each account with the relevant NMDS-SC numbers.

All the above forms need to be signed, typed signatures are not accepted.  Then forward the completed forms by email to wdf@arcuk.org.uk or post to WDF Team, Association for Real Change, 10a Marsden Street, Chesterfield, Derbyshire, S40 1JY

When we receive the completed forms we will forward your WDF Members Declaration Form to Skills for Care. If Skills for Care confirm their acceptance of your establishment/s you will be added to the ARC partnership. We will email to advise you that your Partnership has been processed and we are ready to accept claims from you. At this stage if you are not up to date with your NMDS we will advise you that you need to take action to resolve this. Note: if your NMDS has not been updated since 1st April 2018 we will not be able to process your claims.
