Become a Partner or Affiliate

Partners and Affiliates shape the future of older people's housing and care in the UK

Thank you for your interest in joining ARCO.

In order to achieve our vision, we work with a wide network of stakeholders, suppliers and partners. To support this, we have created a variety of partnership and sponsorship opportunities for organisations that support the work of retirement communities. We offer three levels of partnership and affiliation to meet the needs of our sector.

Affiliates (£1,500 +VAT)

The Affiliate Network offers suppliers and stakeholders the opportunity to gain sector insight, attend events and access networking opportunities. This package is ideal if you want to stay connected to the latest thinking on the expanding Retirement Community sector. 

Supporters (£4,950 +VAT)

We are excited to introduce ARCO Supporters - a new mid-level partnership. ARCO Supporters benefit from the same offering as Affiliates but with the added opportunity to sponsor or be invited to speak at select events. This partnership has been created to provide suppliers and stakeholders the opportunity to get more involved in events with ARCO Members.

Strategic Partners (POA) 

ARCO Strategic Partners (formerly known as Premier Partners), are leaders in the housing-with-care field. Strategic Partnership is subject to approval by the ARCO Board, please do get in touch if you’re interested in starting a conversation. Your organisation will be the only Strategic Partner in your field to be recognised as an ARCO Strategic Partner.
