Welcome to ARCH

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 families 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.

Services and Support

All of our services are offered confidentially, compassionately, without judgement and free of charge for those struggling in the aftermath of an abortion through:

  • Our Helpline, staffed by volunteer Befrienders. 
    • If you want to talk to someone who will listen compassionately call 03456038501 (calls are free from most landlines and contract phones) 7pm-10pm every evening, or 9am-5pm Mon-Fri.
  • Free, one-to-one Counselling
    • Face-to-Face or Telephone or Secure Video.
    • For more information call 01412265407 9am-5pm Mon-Fri or call the Helpline.  You can also email us or use the contact form on this site.
  • Support groups, where possible.

We recognise that there is a great need for much in-depth work in the area of post-abortion support. ARCH encourages the development of honest, caring support networks throughout the country.

We encourage further research into the effects of abortion on the health and wellbeing of all involved.

If you have been affected by abortion and want to talk to someone, call our helpline on 0345 603 8501.

If you feel at risk of harming yourself or others please contact an appropriate service for example, The Samaritans or NHS 24.

We need your help to help others.

If you had an abortion/abortions and were pressurised or coerced in any way, we would be very grateful if you could tell us, in confidence, what might have helped at the time.

We have a brief Questionnaire which you could use (see link below), or simple tell us in your own words.

The information submitted will be used for education and training purposes and will be anonymised.

Thank you very much for any help you feel you can offer.
