Arch connects with people at difficult times in their lives, providing information and guidance, accommodation and support services to over 6,000 customers every year. Since 1989 we’ve been working in North Staffordshire and surrounding areas supporting children, young people, adults, families and professionals on a mission to end domestic abuse and tackle homelessness.
Our customers often have complex needs, including mental ill-health, poor physical health, substance misuse, offending behaviour or asylum seeker/refugee status. This may be compounded by low confidence, social isolation, poverty and debt, and a lack of practical life-skills.
We respect our customers. We never judge. We value the diversity of our local communities.
