Arch connects with people at difficult times in their lives and supports more than 6000 people each year by providing a range of information and guidance, accommodation and support services.

Since 1989 we have been supporting children, young people, adults, families and professionals on a mission to end domestic abuse and tackle homelessness.  We work primarily in North Staffordshire (Stoke-on-Trent, Newcastle-under-Lyme and Staffordshire Moorlands) but also deliver some services in surrounding areas.

Those we work with often have additional or complex needs that have been caused or arisen because of their homelessness or experience of domestic abuse. These complex needs include mental ill-health, poor physical health, substance misuse, offending behaviour or an asylum seeker or refugee status.  Lives are often further complicated by issues such as low confidence, a lack of practical skills for life, social isolation, debt and poverty.

At Arch we take all of this in to account to offer non-judgemental and respectful  services that reflect the diversity of our local communities and the range of support and opportunities individuals need to increase their safety, wellbeing and independence and change their lives.

Last year we supported….

care leavers to develop skills and resilience to live independently
