Arch works in North Staffordshire and surrounding areas supporting adults, children, young people, families and professionals on a mission to prevent and tackle domestic abuse, help end homelessness and promote social inclusion.
We connect with people at difficult times in their lives. 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.
