About Us

Our mission is to support the affordable housing sector to achieve its goals and deliver the high quality homes and services that residents deserve.

For over 30 years, ARK has been driven by the desire to see organisations performing and operating at their best. Why? Because that leads to better homes, communities and ultimately, better lives. We are a leading management and technical consultancy working throughout the UK with particular expertise in working with housing associations, local authorities, government bodies and the charitable sector.

We are known for our trustworthy and collaborative approach to helping our clients with challenges and opportunities.

Our team, which includes more than 80 dedicated experts, has significant experience of working at senior levels in the housing sector in many different roles, so we can support you both strategically and operationally.

We offer a comprehensive range of project, interim and research services to support every part of your organisation. Whether it’s asset management or development and regeneration, recruiting people, managing change or organisational growth, we can help you make the most of your resources.
