How does BCA benefit the community?

Should a member of the community have any issue with a member of BCA, the organisation can provide them with help and guidance to resolve the problem. One of the ways they may do this is by acting a mediator between the two.

Members of the BCA are required to complete professional training resulting in an experienced service being provided by the care service.

Choosing a care service which is a member of the BCA can provide reassurance to care seekers as each care provider is required to go through a vetting service before becoming a member to make sure they are worthy of membership. Regular checks are made to ensure that standards are being met.
