National Care Association remains the most respected and established of the trade bodies due to our strong ethos of putting members at the heart of all that we do. Our reasons for engagement at any level with national associations including CQC is to ensure that our member`s views are heard. The voluntary Board who govern the Association are primarily care providers and specialists in their fields, giving up their time to ensure that the challenges providers face individually are supported by our team in Head Office. One of our greatest strengths is the ability to respond to members queries within 24 hours with an on-call contact which goes directly though to our Executive Chairman. Our primary aim is to be the support our members need when they need it! Amongst the many services provided by the Association are preferential rates for services and products through our partners, as well as support with toolkits and specialist advice. Members tell us that savings through our partners cover the costs of their individual membership many times over. National Care Association is a hub for care providers to access all services which will enable you to recruit safely through our DBS service, access support and advice when needed, personalised toolkits to support your service, keep up to date on developments nationally and locally, attend our national and local conferences and seminars, receive discounts on products and services and much, much more... Being part of an Association like ours only matters when it matters, and when it matters our members know that we will stand with them with help, advice and support.
