ARCOS is a charity, working to improve life for people who have communication, eating, drinking, and/or swallowing difficulties.

These conditions are often complex, persist throughout life and require specialist, long-term treatment.

We help our clients improve their ability to communicate, their physical conditions and mental health, so that they can be as independent as possible.
