ARCH (Abortion Recovery Care & Helpline) is dedicated to promoting the emotional, psychological and spiritual well-being of clients, by the provision of real understanding, counselling and supportive help to women, men and familes after an abortion.
Margaret Cuthill was the National Co-ordinator of ARCH working for over 20 years helping others before retiring. She herself has had abortion and struggled before receiving counselling. She still volunteers on the Helpline.
