Activities of the NCA
The NCA represents individual companies, groups of homes, individuals and charities in the independent care home sector.
The NCA is committed to helping care providers to give the best possible service to the vulnerable people they care for – working in partnership with others to make this a reality. The NCA promotes the care sector by lobbying politicians for the benefit of residents, members and staff. We lobby for equal, fair and consistent support of residents whether they are in the independent or publicly owned care homes. The NCA works with the statutory authorities to negotiate economic levels of fees from the government and local authorities.
We also work with the Care Quality Commission, the local councils and NHS to raise standards and encourage training and development of staff.
