Announcement : ARC 21st November conference booking open NOW


Nationally there is a range of emerging best practice in using the findings of neuroscience, in particular understanding the processes of attachment and trauma, to support children to achieve their potential.

The ARC is a membership organisation dedicated to sharing this best practice, and to turning important research and understanding into ways of working that make a difference.

Recognising that the best developments are those designed and developed locally, at the core of the ARC sits a web platform which supports members to share and develop best practice.

At the heart of the ARC's action research model is a five-step 'Engine of Change' (see right).

You can read about our approach to research here.
