Joining our patron scheme is a wonderful way to show your support for the invaluable services we offer within your community. The scheme is made up of a collection of individuals, companies and groups who want to make a difference to those impacted by the negative impact of substance abuse.

Like us they believe in recovery and the ‘Hope’ that this is possible.

Our Patrons play an essential role in ARCs continued existence, by contributing to the financial stability that we need to operate effectively and efficiently and dedicate as much time as possible to working directly with the people we serve.


All our patrons receive several benefits, but the major benefit is knowing you are helping to fund specialist support for individuals and families when they need it most.

Our Patrons’ donations help us to:


  • Provide care, programs and therapies for individuals, families, and supporters of those struggling with substance use disorders and subsequent mental health issues.

  • Maintain high-quality, individualised care that focusses on compassion, dignity, and respect.

  • Provide support and education for communities and schools to help individuals make informed choices about substance use and increase resilience for those impacted by substance abuse.

  • To tackle the subsequent stigma and shame associated with substance misuse and promote healthy dialogue within our communities.
