ECCA and NCA to merge into new body Care England

Early August saw the announcement that English Community Care Association (ECCA) and National Care Association (NCA) intend to merge from 1st January 2014 into a new body called Care England.

In a joint statement the two chairs, Nadra Ahmed OBE and Jane Ashcroft, explained the decision as having been a while in the making, 'Our sector faces a period of considerable challenge which will require robust representation on behalf of our membership. For some time now, our two organisations have been working together so it felt like the natural next step in our relationship. We believe that combining the two strong and respected organisations together will strengthen the voice of health and social care and give our membership a wider range of services."

Care England hopes that through this merger many local, regional and national groups will welcome the chance to work with them to make the voice of the sector stronger and stronger.
