ARC: the ARC” Northern Irelands first Healthy Living Centre. The award winning ARC Centre is a registered charity managed by a voluntary Board of Directors. ARC delivers a broad range of initiatives that actively address health inequality encouraging a very strong element of user participation in the planning, development and delivery of service. In 2018 ARC was awarded The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, the highest level of civic recognition that can be given to volunteer groups across the UK.

ARC’s role in the project is to identify policy gaps, for example lack of support for rural areas or innovative energy models. A full review of policy and the resulting report will set a clear direction to address the need for policy change and new policy initiatives as enablers to address fuel inequity in each region.
