Dorset Care Homes Association

Resident with her birthday cakeDorset Care Homes Association (DCHA) is a dynamic and member-led association. Our primary role is to represent and support independent providers of residential and nursing care for older people and adults with disabilities in Dorset, Bournemouth, Christchurch & Poole.

We ensure that we work alongside commissioners to achieve the provision of high quality, safe services and a clear element of co-production.

DCHA provides a valuable channel of communication, facilitating the exchange of information and ideas and the sharing of best practice amongst our members. We act as a voice for care providers and make sure that their skill and expertise are used effectively to achieve positive outcomes.

We are continually growing and evolving as more like-minded providers join the association to achieve collaborative aims.
