ARC (Association for Real Change) is the only membership organisation specifically for learning disability and autism providers.

We support knowledge development, improve practice and influence policy in health and social care for the benefit of people with learning disabilities or other support needs such as autism, mental health problems, sensory and physical disabilities.

We bring together learning disability and autism providers to promote collaboration and address the challenges of the sector. We aim to make a real difference to the lives or people with a learning disability, autism or both.

We are driven by our vision of people with learning disabilities or other support needs being at the heart of their services and communities.

If you’re a journalist or broadcaster and would like to speak to us about learning disability issues and our work, please get in touch.
