Welcome to the Ark Project

Established in 2012, the Ark Project takes a creative and person-centred approach to delivering high quality, bespoke packages of support.

Although the organisation offers a wide range of services to the individuals that we work with, everything that we do has one thing in common; each and every element of the support and accommodation that we provide has been crafted with dedication and passion. We take pride in working in partnership with customers and stakeholders to develop services that go beyond the conventional approach.

The organisation is currently delivering a wide range of services across coastal West Sussex, including:

  • Residential care for adults with learning disabilities
  • Supported accommodation for young people aged 16-18
  • Specialist day centre provision for adults with learning disabilities and autistic spectrum conditions

Please take time to enjoy our website and get an understanding of the work we do. If you have any questions, or would like to discuss the possibility of working with us on a new project, please get in contact via our contact form.

I have been incredibly impressed by this service provider. They support people with very complex needs and are very proactive in their working with people. Staff are enthusiastic, they engage well with the customers and other professionals, making reasonable adjustments for people they work with and act as advocates for those who are unrepresented.
