ARC is the only national charity to support anxious, expectant and bereaved parents throughout antenatal screening. We will continue to provide support no matter what the outcome, or what decisions are made about the future of the pregnancy, for as long as our support is needed.
To be able to continue to provide this support service, we need donations; ARC receives no government funding and is often a very difficult sell to funders.
All donations which ARC receives are put back into maintaining our support services, including our telephone and email helpline; our members-only, moderated forum; volunteer support network; website and range of publications for parents, their families and healthcare professionals.
