All change at Surrey Care Association Ltd

We have launched our subscriber offer.

We are still a not for profit organisation representing all providers (private, voluntary or charitable) covering the county of Surrey and near areas, and from all sectors i.e. Care homes, domiciliary care, supported living and housing support. We will retain a “universal” service for all providers but our subscribers will receive a range of “added value” services – all developed as a result of what you told us during our consultations in early 2014 and builds on our work in the sector over the last 8 years.

Our websites will shortly be redesigned with member only access, but they will still be the place to find a whole range of information including training and development opportunities, News; What's On: Business and Market development information and our links with key partners.

How to join? You can now subscribe to SCA, so you don’t miss anything, contact us at membership@surreycare.org.uk. We are offering special rates for Founder members and are planning our diary of events.
