Care Providers Alliance (CPA)

The Care Provider Alliance (CPA) brings together the 10 main national associations which represent independent and voluntary adult social care providers in England.  We work to represent the sector and ensure a coordinated response to the major issues that affect it. Together our members provide care and support to 1.2 million people through residential, home-based and community services, whether commissioned by local authorities and the NHS or privately purchased. Together our members employ over 620,000 care workers.

Business Continuity

As a care provider in England, it’s important that your business is as ready as possible for when the UK leaves the EU. The Care Provider Alliance (CPA) is here to support you through that. The CPA has been commissioned by the Department of Health and Social Care to develop resources to help you plan for the UK leaving the EU – including how to manage any potential service disruption. This includes: information on what the Government and other organisations are doing, guidance on what you can do, practice examples and access to useful information and contacts.

From exceptionally bad weather, a fuel shortage or a pandemic, to financial or quality problems, there are many circumstances that can disrupt services provided by the adult social care sector. The following guidance has been written to help independent and voluntary providers ensure continuity of care if a problem occurs.

CPA Survey 2020

We're delighted to relaunch the CPA targeted survey as part of our work with the DHSC. Many thanks to every member who has taken part in the survey to date. Your feedback is valuable and helps to shape our planning and production of resources. 139 providers took part in the 2019 survey, from a broad range of service types and user groups. All regions in England were represented to reflect the concerns and issues in the sector.

This survey focuses on the EU Settlement Scheme and its impact on the workforce and people using care. The survey is now live and will remain open until midday on Monday 17th February 2020. You can access the survey through the following link:
