The Scottish Transitions Forum is supported by the Association for Real Change (ARC Scotland).  The Association for Real Change is a membership organisation supporting anyone who is involved in the planning or delivery of support or services for people with a learning disability.

Our work also benefits people with other support needs such as autism, mental health issues, long-term health problems and physical and sensory disabilities, and we are therefore committed to sharing our learning and experience across all sectors.

Our vision is to promote real change that puts people with learning disabilities at the centre of decision-making, and in the heart of their communities.

Association for Real Change takes your privacy seriously and will only use your information to administer the products and services you have requested from us. We will never sell your data and we promise to keep your details safe and secure.
