Castle Douglas Activity and Resource Centre

Castle Douglas ARC provides a day service to adults with autism, learning and physical disabilities from the age of 18. Our team have the skills and experience to support our service users and families/carers by providing information, guidance and support to access other services.

We offer a range of activities and training designed for their individual needs, both within the centre and in the community.

The centre has an active committee made up of service users who represent their fellow members and are involved with, and contribute to, how the centre is run. We are also supported by a Parent/Carer group who are also involved in such things as staff recruitment, fundraising and decision making.


The Care Inspectorate regulates and inspects care services in Scotland to make sure that they meet the right standards. Inspections are carried out on a regular basis and the reports are published with the results.
