Become a Member - Hampshire Care Association

Offer to our Membership 2024/25

During the last three years which has been incredibly hard for all care providers following the start of COVID, Hampshire Care Association has continued our work to bring providers together and represent your interests locally and nationally. We have been able to forge new and maintain connections with local authorities and ICS’s and work more closely with national provider groups.

Looking forward, we expect an environment which is more challenging than ever, with continuing Covid risks, exceptional workforce difficulties and the most major sector reform in a generation. We realise how important support networks will be and believe it will be critical that the sector makes our voices heard.

We are ambitious, and despite these challenges we will be looking to:

  • Enable every provider in Hampshire, Portsmouth, and Southampton to understand the local market and to thrive in it by delivering the highest possible standards of care.
  • Support everyone working in the care sector, especially our registered managers, to do their best work and act as an advocate for the sector and the people we care for, share best practice and encourage others to consider a career in care, while looking after their own wellbeing.
  • Make the voices of every provider, our staff and service users, heard where it matters, including in places of power and in the media.

To achieve these aims, we want to continue to bring together every provider in Hampshire, Southampton, and Portsmouth

And so, following on from our free membership offer from 2022 we are now in the position of asking you all to pay a small, subsidised amount for your membership. from the 1st of April 2024 we are offering our HCA membership at:

Residential and nursing homes

1-4 Homes £100

5-9 Homes £200

10 and above £300

Domiciliary Care providers

1- 4 Service Locations £100

5- 9 Service Locations £200

10 and above Service Locations £300

The membership fee required will be inclusive of VAT.

At HCA we believe we are stronger together

How was this offer possible?

We believe the best use of the HCA’s reserves, built up over many years, was to continue this gesture to support our membership with free membership for the period that our reserves allowed.

We hope you that you all saw this as a huge support and benefit, but for 2024, where membership fees are now required, we hope that this will see this is a fair cost for everyone.

Whether or not you are or have previously been an HCA member, please complete this form to ensure that we have the correct details for you.
