United Kingdom Homecare Association (UKHCA)

The United Kingdom Homecare Association (UKHCA) is the professional association for home care providers in the United Kingdom, with over 2,000 members in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Domiciliary care companies who are registered with their relevant governing body e.g. Care Inspectorate (Scotland) Care Quality Commission (England), are eligible for membership to the UKHCA. The UKHCA listens to its members and then voices this to regional and national policy-makers and regulators.

UKHCA’s Code of Practice:

  • Promote the independence, preferences, dignity and privacy of people who use their services
  • Work collaboratively
  • Select and support competent staff across the whole organisation
  • Achieve and maintain registration
  • Maintain a sustainable and effective business

The UKHCA’s number one priority is to support member domiciliary care providers to provide high-quality, sustainable care to people in their own home. Members are supported with resources, news updates, discounted DBS checks, access to dedicated homecare events and promotion of their services.

If you are a home care provider and would like to list your services on TrustedCare.co.uk then see our Join Us page.
