Annual Representative Conference (ARC) 

  • ARC is a national CSP conference held annually and provides an opportunity for those who represent members to discuss and debate matters of importance to members and the services the CSP offers through the submission of motions. Not everyone is allowed to submit a motion, the diversity networks are one of the approved groups that can submit an ARC motion. It’s an excellent opportunity for members to have their say and influence CSP policies and direction.  

     Attendees will also have the opportunity to go to the fringe meetings that take place outside of the conference. These are on topics not included in the main conference but which focus on policy (i.e. support worker recruitment, rehabilitation, etc.), and are selected by the ARC Agenda Committee from proposals submitted by the delegations.  

    The diversity networks act on behalf of the CSP membership body to ensure representation and the presence of diverse voices at the ARC. Each network can send a delegation of up to two to attend. These are two fully paid for places.  

    The delegation can respond to relevant motions at ARC on behalf of members, along with submitting up to a maximum of three motions. Council will also attend ARC.

  • Read the full ARC constitution. 

  • ARC Motions - Motions are formal proposals which are voted on at ARC. Once accepted by ARC they are called resolutions and become the policy of the Conference, therefore, they need to be worded clearly. However, as ARC is an advisory body to the CSP’s democratically elected Council, ARC resolutions are not automatically mandatory on Council.

Trade Union Congress (TUC) equality conferences  

  • The diversity networks are encouraged to attend and submit motions to the TUC equality conferences: Black Workers, Disabled Workers and LGBT+.
  • TUC equality conferences provide an opportunity for any CSP member to shape the work of the TUC and affiliate trade unions. Each year, we send a small delegation to conference and submit motions on relevant topics. Topics in recent years have included reasonable adjustments, international physio recruits and flexible working.
  • Please contact the National Officer, Siân Caulfield for more information about this process.
