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 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.

The ARCO Affiliate Network (£1,500 +VAT)

The Affiliate Network offers suppliers and stakeholders the opportunity to gain sector insight, attend digital and live 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. See subscribers to the ARCO Affiliate Network 

ARCO Advisory Council (£7,500 +VAT) 

With a growing sector, ARCO recognises the contribution of key advisors and suppliers. The shape of regulation and legislation is set to change considerably over the next 10 years, this will also increase the need for specific advisory capability and capacity. 

Therefore, ARCO is pleased to announce the formation of the ARCO Advisory Council. Members of the ARCO Advisory Council will meet three times a year to discuss the key priorities for the sector. The findings will be fed into the ARCO Board on a regular basis. The Council’s recommendations will inform the work of ARCO and its Board and ARCO Advisory Council meetings will be attended by members of the ARCO Board. 

ARCO Strategic Partners will automatically be part of the Advisory Council, and there will be a limit of twenty organisations forming the group. 

Strategic Partners (POA) 

ARCO Strategic Partners are leaders in the Housing with Care field. Strategic Partnership is subject to approval by the ARCO Board, so please do get in touch if you are interested in starting a conversation. Your organisation will be the only Strategic Partner in your field to be recognised as an ARCO Strategic Partner. See our Strategic Partners
