What is ARC?

The Pendlebury Centre has a long established partnership with Arts for Recovery in the Community (ARC) in Reddish, Stockpot.

ARC is Stockport’s specialist arts and health charitable organisation and for the past five years they have provided funding for an artist to work with a group of students from the Pendlebury Centre and Jigsaw outreach team.

Each project is aimed at improving the students’ self-esteem and social skills whilst working in a creative environment.

Past projects include personalised cushions and blankets exploring moods, ceramic project based upon illustrating emotions, decorative panels to improve the Pendlebury garden environment and storytelling boards for a local primary school.
