Services

ARC (Association for Real Change) is a membership organisation, which supports providers of services to people with a learning disability. It provides access to information, services and advice, training and a background of collective experience and practical knowledge applicable to everyday problems.

The Progress Scotland Project works in partnership with people with learning difficulties, voluntary and statutory bodies in Aberdeenshire to assist change and progress towards full and inclusive citizenship for all by:

  • Supporting people with learning difficulties to develop and build the skills and confidence to effectively contribute to meetings, groups and committees and other places where decisions that affect them are made
  • Enabling people with learning difficulties to engage with Community Planning processes to ensure the planning and delivery of wider community services is inclusive
  • Offering provider organisations access to training, information and networks
  • Bringing together people with learning difficulties, provider organisations and staff from Community Health and Planning Partnerships to ensure the views of people with learning difficulties are included in the design and delivery of services through the Community Planning process
  • Offering provider organisations and people with learning difficulties specialist knowledge and expertise about ‘In-Control’, ‘Citizen Leadership’, ‘Person Centred Planning’ and other person-centred ways of working
  • Giving people with learning difficulties information and advice about how they can have more control over their money and awareness about their finances
