The Associated Retirement Community Operators (ARCO) is the main body representing the Integrated Retirement Community sector in the UK.

ARCO was formed in September 2012 by its founder members.

Its members include both private and not-for-profit members, comprising about half of the Integrated Retirement Community sector.

Including its members there are over 100 organisations associated with ARCO, including ARCO Affiliates, Partners, Strategic Partners and members of the ARCO Accelerator Programme.


What is an Integrated Retirement Community?

Setting standards for Integrated Retirement Communities

ExtraCare’s mission is creating sustainable communities that provide homes older people want, lifestyles they can enjoy, and care if it’s needed.

We are proud to be a member of ARCO, the main body supporting Integrated Retirement Communities across the UK, setting standards for the sector and representing the interests of consumers and providers at national level. Working with ARCO, we champion the interests of all those who live or work in Integrated Retirement Communities (IRC’s).

ARCO Consumer Code

As Approved Operators we aim to comply with the ARCO Consumer Code at all the locations that we are able to register with ARCO.

The ARCO Consumer Code sets out the standards expected by its member organisations. It provides a benchmark for good practice within the housing-with-care sector. This code therefore states what ExtraCare residents can expect of the charity. The Consumer Code will be displayed in every ExtraCare location and available from local staff teams on request.

You can also read the code and find out more about their work by visiting ARCO’s website.
