South Essex Care and Health Association

Choosing a care home or a care service for a relative or a friend is not an easy task. Quite often there is never enough time and trying to interpret someone else’s wishes is difficult. Equally getting to grips with the costs of care and sources of finance can appear to be a minefield.

SECHA members are residential or nursing care home providers covering most of Essex and domiciliary care providers who are dedicated to providing the highest standards of care and value for money.

The Association is active, involved and dedicated. It provides regular training and development programmes for staff and is a Disclosure and Barring Service registered umbrella body enabling DBS checks on all our members’ staff as required. We strive constantly to keep our members fully up to date with latest care practices and changes in the law as it affects care homes. We have found that our members benefit enormously from the ‘Buddy’ system we operate which helps members with one to one consultation and assistance as required with problems encountered.

SECHA administers a bed register of our member homes. You can find this on our website The register is updated daily on the website and sent to local authorities, CCGs and other placement agencies once a week. Alternatively, contact our administrator who will forward a copy to you.

Please note that all members are marked within the listings with SECHA.
