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 dedicated Board of volunteers who together 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 charitable providers), 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 and is an important principle for the association. LCA recognises 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 are pleased to be working with Logicare Plus for our membership services, including our newsletter and website, and member benefits from supplier deals and offers. We also pleased to continue to be able to offer the services of free initial legal advice from Brunswicks LLP.
The challenges facing the care sector are better faced together and LCA is an important and effective stakeholder in Health and Social Care in the Lancashire and North-West context.
