Please take the jump for Arc! Our mission is to end rough sleeping in the South West and to provide a welcoming and safe environment for those who have sadly become homeless. We cannot do this without the support of our kind community. Together, we can put an end to this suffering and ensure that no one has to go through this alone.
Arc is a local homeless charitable organisation, supporting over 350 people per year. Our mission is to end rough sleeping in the South West, through housing, assisting, supporting and empowering homeless people in Somerset. Formerly known as Taunton Association for the Homeless, we have been in existence for more than 40 years, now with 15 properties housing 174 people. As well as providing accommodation Arc aims to ensure no-one has to spend more than one night homeless, with our Outreach Team working hard to support rough sleepers, getting them into accommodation as quickly as possible.
Arc understands that it is not just about having a roof over your head so we help our clients on a road to recovery, inspiring and assisting them to move forwards through a positive journey to independence.This includes the opportunity for clients to join our in-house ‘Arc Academy’, offering free activities and courses, alongside 1 to 1 support from our Pathway Workers. Once a client is ready we help clients move into independant accommodation with schemes such as tenant accreditation and deposit guarantees.
