The Derbyshire Care Providers Association represents the majority of care homes throughout Derbyshire. We constantly strive to tirelessly achieve a fair price for care and fair contract with both the County and City Councils.

Our purpose at DCPA is to represent the independent sector and exchange ideas of how to improve the quality of life for people in care homes.

At the Derbyshire Care Providers Association we know from experience that a good care home can help transform people’s lives, give them new opportunity and help them realise independence and provide personal care with dignity and understanding.

Our Association is run by an executive committee all of whom are volunteers who own and/or operate their own care homes.

The Derbyshire Care Providers Association (DCPA) was founded to represent the views of the care sector and to provide support and guidance to those looking for a care home. We aim to provide you with the most up-to-date information on our members care homes and make sure that the homes meet the high standards that are required of a care home.

The Derbyshire Care Providers Association brings together the best care homes in the Derbyshire area. Our members benefit from a listing on our website in the member section and regular meetings to discuss industry initiatives and relevant topics.

The DCPA is an independent association that represents privately owned care homes in the Derbyshire area. If you are a care provider located in Derbyshire and would like to become a member, please contact us.
