About the RCPA

We provide a range of support to proprietors, managers and employees of  care provider organisations within Somerset. Our members include both profit and not-for-profit organisations providing home care, care homes, supported living and community support.

We provide advice, training, resources and support to our members in relation to a wide range of issues. We facilitate engagement with Somerset County Council and Commissioning Group, NHS Trusts and other stakeholders. We support our members in collaboration, negotiation and lobbying in relation to the development and delivery of care and support. Acting as a voice for care providers, we aim to represent the views of all our members, bringing their concerns and queries to the attention of service commissioners as well as government and regulatory bodies.
