Newton Stewart Activity and Resource Centre

Newton Stewart ARC offers support, activities and personal development opportunities for people aged 16 and over. If you have a learning, physical disability, an Autism Spectrum Disorder or need extra support at different times in your life, we can help.

Our skilled and experienced staff will work with you, your family and carers to put together a Personal Support Plan about what matters to you. We will help you to achieve your personal goals and outcomes.

Our service can also support your family or carers by providing information and signposting you to a range of services which can offer guidance and practical support.

We will support you to take part in a wide range of activities, help you to travel as independently as possible, and support you in community activities. We work in partnership with different agencies such as Disability Sport Scotland, NHS Health Improvement Team, Building Healthy Communities and Police Scotland. Together we will be able to offer activities that are of interest to you.


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.
