'September 1978'

September 1978. ARC started in 1972 at the Brotherhood of St Laurence as The Family Centre Project. Action and Resource Centre (ARC) for low-income families opened in 1972 on a self-management basis, taking over from the Family Centre and continuing the Family Centre Project philosophy - 'low-income people need a voice and an organisation where they can help other low income people'. With 95 member families, fifteen members of the Family Centre were employed as resource workers. The ARC's Support Work Program (SWOP) provided employment for men who had been out of work for some time. The formal agreement between the BSL and the Action & Resource Centre was signed on 28 July 1976, the first step towards autonomy for the project.(BSL timeline)
