How to find us

Assisting Recovery in the Community



What is ARC?

Assisting Recovery in the Community (ARC) provides individuals with mental health issues with practical advice, guidance and structured support to improve their wellbeing.

How does ARC work?

A support worker is allocated to each service user, who meets with the individual to discuss the issues that are affecting their mental wellbeing and encourages them to feel good, function well and move forward with their lives.

Support is offered in various locations across the county borough, which can include service users’ homes.

What can ARC do for me?

ARC can use a range of approaches to help service users tackle existing issues such as anxiety and panic. Individually tailored support that promotes independence and wellbeing is also available, which may involve getting out of the house, taking part in community activities or accessing educational and employment services.

Service users can also be introduced to service providers such as counselling organisations which offer additional support that is more specific to their needs.

How can I access ARC?

ARC can be accessed via referrals from a variety of healthcare professionals including:

  • GPs
  • Local Primary Care Mental Health Nurse Assessors
  • Home Treatment Teams
  • Consultant Psychiatrists
  • Community Mental Health Teams (CMHT)
  • Inpatient Services
  • Liaison Teams
  • Community Drugs and Alcohol Teams (CDAT)
