Working together to end rough sleeping
Arc is always keen to work in partnership with others to meet our aims and support vulnerable people in Somerset.
Arc has many positive working relationships with other support agencies and authorities in the area.
This includes being a part of the recently formed ‘One Team’. The One Team is made up of various agencies such as Somerset West and Taunton Council , the Police, Open Door, Somerset County Council and others. The team work together to prevent rough sleeping and begging in the area.
Arc also work closely with other support agencies to ensure a smooth referral for clients to their services. This includes agencies such as Somerset Drug and Alcohol Service and Rethink Mental Health Service. We also have a close working relationship with Open Door, a day centre for rough sleepers in Taunton. Our Outreach Team base themselves at Open Door regularly in order to connect with those looking for accommodation.
Arc is supportive of other charities and will do what we can to join together and help in ways we can.
