National Care Forum

The National Care Forum (NCF) is the membership organisation for not-for-profit organisations in the care and support sector. NCF supports over 165 members to improve social care provision and enhance the quality of life, choice, control and wellbeing of people who use care services.

NCF member organisations providing a wide range of quality care and support services, including home care, housing with care, day care, intermediate care, outreach care and support services, dementia care, residential and nursing care, and specialist provision for all adults and older people.

Formally constituted in 2003 NCF drives forward quality care in the not-for-profit sector, governed by our Board of Directors and assisted by the NCF staff team and headed by our CEO, Vic Rayner @vicrayner.

NCF is dedicated to representing members and voicing member concerns to the decision makers. We ensure member interests are represented at all levels and are in constant contact with government departments, politicians and the media to ensure our voice is heard.

We keep our members up to date with news and developments in the care sector and provide opportunities to meet, share ideas and best practise through regular forum meetings, annual conferences and events, membership benchmarking surveys and reports, and the legendary NCF Members Weekly Update.

NCF Consult offers direct support and advice services to care organisations provided by our team of experienced consultants. We can assist with preparing for inspections, coaching and mentoring, reviewing actions and action plans, updating policies and procedures, conducting external investigations, and supporting organisational transformation.

NCF is the strongest voice for the not-for-profit care and support sector!
