Hertfordshire Care Providers Association
Hertfordshire Care Providers Association (HCPA) is a membership body open to all independent providers of social care.
This includes private, not-for-profit and charitable organisations who are delivering care to people in their own homes, in a residential, supported or nursing setting within Hertfordshire.
Hertfordshire Care Providers Association is extremely dedicated to its mission of ‘sharing best practice in care through partnership’, and through its close relationship with Adult Care Services at Hertfordshire County Council, it is able to act as a voice for care providers on important adult social care issues in Hertfordshire.
HCPA has excellent partnership links to the local authority, the NHS and its clinical commissioning groups. Our relationship with the local authority has gone from strength to strength and, by working in partnership, we can ensure that Hertfordshire is one of the best counties in which to find excellent care for vulnerable adults.
We attend regular strategic and liaison meetings with Health and Community Services at the local authority to discuss and review contracts and procedures, as well as a variety of initiatives aimed at tackling issues facing vulnerable adults and designing better ways of working for the future.
Hertfordshire Care Providers Association also acts as a dedicated funding hub for the county to help ensure that there is a fully-trained, up-to-date and competent workforce providing good quality, personalised care, and each year we celebrate excellence in care by hosting the annual Hertfordshire Care Awards.
Hertfordshire care providers who hold a current membership with HCPA are committed to delivering the highest standards of care and keen to play an active part in the county’s wider social care community.
We actively encourage anyone who provides adult social care in Hertfordshire to join HCPA as a member; we can offer up-to-date information, support and advice, training courses and qualifications, and a host of business services.
