Ceretas is the professional association that represents individuals and organisations who work in home care either in the statutory, independent or not for profit sector.
Ceretas is a membership organisation that promotes best practice in supporting people to live in their own homes. We produce Good Practice Guides and share information to support members on a practical basis with support and advice on issues that effect the home care sector.
Ceretas has links with other like minded organisations and represents the sector at meetings with national policy makers and home care regulators on issues that affect our members. The status and recognition of the importance of home care remains a priority for Ceretas and we will continue to promote the sector with national and regional government via a wide range of media and other communication networks.
Please browse through our website and contact us if you have any questions, but better still, wh y not join Ceretas and not only add your voice where it matters, but share in the wealth of our experience?

Recently the Department of Health carried out a Performance and Capability Review of CQC, the first in a series of reviews of Arms-Length Bodies. The review focused on the future capability of the organisation and followed a period of external scrutiny of CQC by a number of bodies. CQC has published their response to the recommendations of the Capability Review.
In a statement, Dame Jo Williams (CQC Chair) says:
"We have listened to the comments made about the organisation during its first three years and acknowledged the need to listen to what the public and providers experience and expect from CQC. We also welcome the growing appreciation of the scale of the challenge that we were set. In addition, the Board believes a thorough and timely response is needed to the recent external scrutiny. We already have a significant programme of work underway which will increase our effectiveness. The points raised in the Department of Health review mean that more has to be done. The action plan that we are publishing today, together with our forthcoming 2012/13 annual business plan, sets out how we will do that. We will publish monthly updates on our website, beginning in May.
