Integrated Care Systems (ICSs)

To ensure that the integration agenda succeeds where previous attempts have not, Care England, the largest and most diverse representative body for adult social care in England, is proud to announce our Integrated Care System (ICS) Membership.

Care England is the leading representative body for independent care providers, with a membership ranging from individual homes to regional and national groups. Our members provide services for people with long-term conditions, including older people, people with learning disabilities, and those with mental ill health or dementia.

To see the complete overview of the ICS Membership, please view our online brochure.

Please contact Louis Holmes, lholmes@careengland.org.uk for further details.
