Hertfordshire Care Providers Association (HCPA)

We are pleased to be associated with this publication produced by publishers Care Choices. Through our close relationship with Health and Community Services, we are able to act as a voice for care providers on important issues concerning care in the county.

We hope you find this Directory useful in your search for appropriate care in Hertfordshire.
Hertfordshire Care Providers Association (HCPA) is a membership body open to all independent providers of social care (private, not-for-profit and charitable organisations) delivering care to people in their own homes, in a residential, supported or a nursing setting within Hertfordshire.

We are extremely proud of our mission statement: ‘Sharing best practice in care through partnership’ because we have used partnership working to ensure that Hertfordshire is one of the best counties in which to find excellent care for vulnerable people.

Membership of HCPA is considered a sign of a progressive organisation, committed to delivering the highest standards of care and keen to play an active part in the county’s wider social care community. HCPA believes in personalisation as the way forward with care and we actively encourage membership for anyone receiving direct payments or those working with them; we can offer information, advice, guidance and funding for a number of initiatives.

HCPA has excellent partnership links to the local authority, the NHS and its Clinical Commissioning Groups and attend regular strategic and liaison meetings with Health and Community Services at the Local Authority to discuss and review contracts, procedures and other issues as well as working on a variety of initiatives aimed both
at tackling immediate issues facing vulnerable people and designing better ways of working for the future.

The Association set up a memorandum of
understanding with the local authority over
four years ago and our relationship has gone
from strength to strength enabling Health
and Community Services to talk to member
organisations through HCPA and enabling us to act
as a ‘voice’ for care providers on important issues.
HCPA also act as a hub for funding in the county,
ensuring that there is a fully trained workforce
offering the best of care with the most up-to-date
practices, and celebrate excellence in care by
hosting the annual Hertfordshire Care Awards.
We are happy to engage with any new care
provider or member of the public and will be
delighted to offer you support.
We look forward to hearing from you on
01707 536020 or on admin@hcpa.info.
