About us

The Agricultural and Rural Centre (ARC) was founded in 2009 and was built by the local community with the intention to enable children and adults with disabilities the opportunity to have a "hands-on" experience with animals and on the land.

As a Not-For-Profit Community Interest Company, we remain committed to continue to improve the centre as much as possible to enhance the quality of service that our participants get.    

The Agricultural and Rural Centre has its own Committee of passionate local professionals and residents who work tirelessly to ensure that the participants have an enriched experience at the ARC by local
fundraising for the children to have Christmas Party's and presents, Easter egg hunt and activities,  An annual presentation evening and Leavers Prom, as well as raising funds to provide additional facilities at the ARC for the participants and animals.    The ARC Committee also work with the Company management team to direct the governance of the centre, including handling complaints and compliments.
