WELCOME

ARCOS is a UK national charity, working to improve life for children and adults who have communication, eating, drinking and swallowing difficulties. These conditions are often complex, persist throughout life and require specialist, long-term treatment. Our goal is to enable clients to benefit from the latest advances in knowledge, understanding, skills and technology. Based in the West Midlands, we have a Resource, Training and Therapy Centre and operate a nationwide outreach service.

ARCOS is not a private clinic. We depend upon charitable grants and donations to maintain a high quality of service. Fees are charged for assessment, therapy and training services. A great deal of information and advice is provided free charge.

ARCOS works in collaboration with the NHS and other organisations working directly with clients and with their families. In order to promote comprehensive help and support, we expect to liaise with the client’s GP and other professionals involved. ARCOS provides training for professionals including doctors, therapists, nurses and teachers. The NHS, throughout the UK purchases the majority of ARCOS training courses for professional staff. ARCOS also provides training for relatives and other carers.
