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'), LCA events (conferences and seminars) and the Registered Care Manager Network it facilitates.
LCA mainly covers the Lancashire County Council area but also has membership in Blackpool and 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.
