ARCO Consumer Code

ARCO Consumer Code

The Associated Retirement Community Operators (ARCO) are the main body representing the retirement community sector in the UK.

ARCO strives to:

  • Promote confidence in the sector, ensuring that all members are providing a high quality service to their residents. 
  • Raise awareness of the retirement community model amongst older people and stakeholders alike.     
  • Increase the volume and quality of expertise within the sector and share this with members, continually investing in research to better understand and promote the socio-economic value of the housing with care model.

ARCO launched their ARCO Consumer Code to provide a benchmark for good practice within the housing-with-care sector. All ARCO-registered schemes have to adhere to the standards laid out in ARCO’s Standards and Compliance Framework.

St Monica Trust is a founder member of ARCO and we are annually assessed by external assessors to review our services compliance with the Code.
