Care Provider Alliance
The Care Provider Alliance (CPA) is an informal alliance of the ten main national associations which represent independent and voluntary adult social care providers in England. Nadra Ahmed is the chair of the alliance.
The members are:
- Associated Retirement Community Operators (ARCO)
- Association for Real Change(ARC)
- Association of Mental Health Providers
- Care England
- National Care Association (NCA)
- National Care Forum (NCF)
- Registered Nursing Home Association (RNHA)
- Shared Lives Plus
- United Kingdom Home Care Association
- Voluntary Organisations Disability Group
It acts as a collective voice, and as a pressure group and lobbyist for the sector. It has been very involved with initiatives developed under the Better Care Fund and has produced various resources for its members.
In 2015 it formed an alliance with the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services, the Care and Support Alliance, and the NHS Confederation all of whose members are affected by the pressures on social care. The alliance is attempting to influence the result of the 2015 Comprehensive Spending Review. It warns that the sector is facing “a deepening crisis”. The campaign has attracted support from some local authorities.
