The Association for Real Change (ARC) is a leading umbrella body representing service providers in the learning disability sector. Our purpose is to improve the quality of life for people who have a learning disability by supporting anyone who is involved in the planning or delivery of support and services.

Our work benefits people with a learning disability, autism, or other additional support needs, their families and everyone involved in the provision of support for people and their families.  This includes those who plan, provide, commission, develop policies and regulate support and services.

We have offices in England, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
