Care Provider - Somerset
RCPA provide lots of useful information about what is happening locally and updates on Somerset Council. We feel it is important to support trade bodies which aim to help our care and support sector and help to communicate collective messages to the local authority and other national bodies. You provide good value for money and are lovely to deal with.
