MEET OUR HARD

WORKING TEAM...

Arc is indebted to so many clinicians, supporters, service users and volunteers who tirelessly endorse the project, and without whom our community driven charity simply wouldn't exist.

Putting Personal Recovery at the Heart of what we do...

Stripped to its bare bones, our common motivation has always been to create and support a standard of service and therapy to which each of us would want to be referred into at time of personal loss and painful readjustment.

"WE ALL CARRY WITHIN US OUR PLACES OF EXILE" Albert Camus

Ricky Romain is the artist behind the image used throughout Arc's literature and website, from his work 'Sometimes it's too late for tenderness'. Ricky has been working with imagery connected to Human Rights issues for the last seventeen years. He has exhibited throughout the country and overseas - most notably at the Council of Europe building in Strasburg. In 2007, a major exhibition of Ricky's work was used to open the newly refurbished Amnesty International Headquarters building in London. 

 

"It is a privilege to support in any way the great work that Arc are achieving in the community. We share a common purpose in attuning to the painful psychological displacement caused by grief."

We offer a fresh and knowledgeable insight into design and print. Based in a quiet location in East Devon our aim is to get to know your requirements and creatively turn them into print. We are happy to take on projects of all sizes from a single canvas print to a full range of stationery and everything in between.

'We consider it a privilege to support Arc, a small charity that is accomplishing great things locally, with their website and literature'.
