Special Needs Care

We are a team of professionals led by a practising solicitor delivering bespoke, personalised care solutions to people with learning disabilities, autism and complex care/health needs. Investing heavily in people and technology, we are a proud accredited living wage paying company, and we have developed the first Active Support APP on the market today. We love what we do, we love changing lives for the better.

Our USPs

We are champions of the best models of care, particularly ACTIVE SUPPORT and POSITIVE BEHAVIOUR SUPPORT, led by a team of board-certified behaviour analysts across all our services. We have developed innovative digital solutions to support the implementation of Active Support, turning person centred planning into person centred action. We are so much more than just care provider, as we believe in education, and we offer supported living services, state of the art emergency/respite services designed specifically for people with autism and challenging behaviour alongside day centres. We also offer award winning housing services, legal services, as well as workforce development.

Active Support for the 21st century: Love how YOU live

Quality of life, the BAGS Model.

We think about quality of life in terms of Belonging and connection, having Autonomy and control, developing our Gifts and talents, and being a Speaker and listener with a sense of self, namely the BAGS Model. We pursue quality of life goals through Active Support, Positive Behavioural Support and the BAGS model, and these models have significantly improved staff attitudes towards service users through the promotion of engagement, opportunity and participation. In addition to this, our Behaviour Analysts carry out functional assessments for those individuals whose behaviour can be operationally defined as challenging. This process enables us to ascertain the function of behaviour and draw an individual intervention plan based upon the persons specific needs.

Special needs supported living

Supported living

Our aim is to support individuals on a daily basis to realise and maximise their potential.

Not only is there a keen focus on developing independence, but a drive to help our clients grow to ensure they achieve their hopes, dreams and aspirations.

In order to achieve this, we will work with those we support to identify their personal strengths and weakenesses.

Once identified, a plan will be developed to highlight aspirations, ideas and achievements. Independence is key, and therefore providing a support network that helps to grow that individual’s experiences and opportunities is paramount to us.

Active Support APP

Active Support is an evidence-based approach that allows service users and staff to plan how they use their time, to decide the level of support that is required, and then to record how things went.

We have developed the first app on the UK market. Future versions will include features that help staff teach new skills and address challenging behaviour within the framework of Positive Behavioural Support (PBS), a framework for designing environments that make challenging behaviour irrelevant, ineffective, inefficient.


Welcome to The ARC - our innovative, state of the art facility dedicated to enhancing the opportunities for people with learning disabilities and autism.
