Care association relaunched


Posted on April 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

An association representing companies, charities, organisations and individuals involved in the social care, support and health sector in the West of England, re-launched in April.

Care and Support West, formerly known as ARCHA, offers support and advice to members, and information to the public relating to the social care, support and health sectors in general, and in the West of England in particular. The recent re-branding of the association follows a fundamental review aimed at ensuring the association is able to continue to represent members as the social care sector evolves and diversifies.

The association has 80 members representing 100-plus residential homes and health, support and social care services in the region.
