The Story of BCA

Bradford Care Association - united, our care providers are in safe hands

The Bradford Care Association (BCA) brings unity to care providers in the Bradford district, helping them to work in partnership for the good of everyone in the social care sector

Established in 2014, and with members representing from across all care sectors within Bradford, the BCA deals with everyday issues and the many priorities facing those in the social care sector. BCA is a community group that’s a combined force for good. The BCA shares best practice, vital information, relevant advice and guidance, as well as providing training, support and direction on funding, grants, Covid-19, PPE and much more. Acting with one voice when liaising with the Local Authority (LA), the NHS, the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) to resolve issues and promote best practice – the BCA works tirelessly to ensure resilience for Bradford’s care providers. An outstanding association providing excellent value for money (membership is just £100 per year), the non-profit organisation has a highly experienced board of directors who work voluntarily for the good of all care providers in the Bradford district.

About Us

Resource Center

The BCA has a wealth of knowledge and resources for its members that will help and support care providers and their teams with everyday practices and governance.

The BCA is passionate about quality care and lobbies at a local, regional and national level for the good of all members. The BCA’s involvement with the ‘Cost of Care Exercise’ is also helping to achieve a fairer cost for the care being delivered by homecare, domiciliary care and nursing and residential providers in Bradford. The BCA recently negotiated and achieved void funding for care homes – a grant that many Local Authorities have not received - and is currently fighting for further financial support for the sector.
