‘Social problems such as family break-up and crime have increased as the bonds of society have loosened’

In light of Covid-19 guidance, we have made the decision to temporarily close our head office at 7 The Crescent, Taunton.  All services based at our head office will continue remotely.
Our hostel, Lindley House, will remain staffed and all services we run to support homeless people will continue. As always, our service users are at the forefront of our minds and of our work.
We have been put many precautions and plans in place  to limit our risk of the virus affecting any of our clients, staff and volunteers. We will continue to do what we can in this time of uncertainty.
If you need to contact us, please use mobile numbers and email addresses. If you do not have a specific mobile number or email address, you can email us on: [email protected]
Lindley House are still contactable by their landline: 01823 254557 but please only call this number if it is specific to their service. Thank you.

Arc house, support and enable homeless people to maximise their potential. Working in Taunton, West Somerset and Sedgemoor.
We strive for all homeless people to have a safe and supportive environment, where people can be inspired and empowered by their own strengths.

1 in 6 people in the UK will spend at least one night homeless. But we know that, given the right help even the most vulnerable in our society can recover from the issues that have resulted in their homelessness. Every year we are able to support hundreds of people through a positive and personalised journey to independence.
