Welcome to the
Lancashire Care Association
Lancashire Care Association (LCA) has been representing quality independent sector providers in Lancashire since 1992 and has been a not-for-profit company since 2001. There is a small core staff and a Board of dedicated volunteers who carry the workload for membership services, partnership working, DBS services ('Safe and Sure DBS') and LCA events (conferences, LCA seminars and 'Learning Together' workshops (with LCC).
LCA mainly covers the LCC area (including our work through the 'Social Care Partnership') but also has significant membership in Blackpool and members in Blackburn with Darwen and adjoining areas. LCA represents the independent sector (private and 3rd sector), care homes and domiciliary care, larger groups and smaller independents, delivering care and support to adults and older people.
This mix is reflected in the Board make-up. LCA has a leadership role as well as representation and we seek to ensure we have the right range and depth of expertise on the Board.
We work with a range of suppliers to help providers meet the demands of the pressurised world they work in. We are also offer the services of free initial legal advice from David Collins, solicitors. Please contact the office should you want to discuss this (01772 455574).
The challenges facing the health and social care sector are better faced with LCA.
