Changing Thinking, Changing Practice, Changing Lives

Association for Real Change


Association for Real Change is a leading umbrella body representing service providers in the learning disability and autism 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.

We are known as ARC England and provide a range of services such as high quality information, networking opportunities, learning disability training courses, qualifications, publications, and Disclosure checks.

You don't have to be an ARC England member to access most of our services.

Association for Real Change is committed to promoting best practice within the learning disability and autism sector and we work with others such as the Department of Health, Skills for Care, Big Lottery Fund and Comic Relief through a range of projects.

Association for Real Change has offices in England, Northern Ireland and Scotland.
