National health and social care charity, Community Integrated Care, launches new five year strategy

National health and social care charity Community Integrated Care is proud to announce the launch of its new five year strategy, in which the organisation has committed to becoming ‘The UK’s Leading Health and Social Care Charity’.

This will see Community Integrated Care pursue a highly ambitious programme of investment, development and change – aimed at delivering the highest standards of care to the people it supports, enhancing its workforce and growing by 30% over the coming five years.

Community Integrated Care is one of the UK’s largest health and social care charities. It supports over 4500 people across England and Scotland with learning disabilities, mental health concerns, autism and age-related needs, such as dementia, and in 2012 had a turnover of £93 million.

The new strategy will see the charity make an investment of at least £23 million over five years into developing a number of brand new specialist care services across England and Scotland. This will include creating several of its pioneering ‘EachStep’ dementia care services – which deliver specialist integrated dementia support to assist people with the condition from diagnosis until the end of their lives; developing single person tenancies to support people with learning disabilities to live with greater independence in the community; and investing in high-quality, outcome-focussed domiciliary care services. 

This outlay will be matched by a multi-million pound investment into the charity’s existing portfolio of services, to further enhance and specialise living environments in many of its services.

This programme of investment is underpinned by a holistic effort to develop and enhance all areas of the charity, to offer a greater service to both its service user and professional partner customers. This effort will include making further investment into service specific training for frontline colleagues; enhancing its quality assurance systems; and developing partnerships with leading universities and care sector bodies.

In parallel with Community Integrated Care’s drive to develop and enhance the services it delivers, the charity is also planning to expand its reach and assist many more people, by growing 30% over the coming half-decade.

Neil Matthewman, Chief Executive of Community Integrated Care, says: “Community Integrated Care’s new five year strategy sets out a bold direction for our organisation, as we strive to become the leading health and social care charity in the UK. This is a commitment that we sincerely believe in and we will be uncompromising in realising this aim.”

He adds, “Over the course of five years we will be enhancing all areas of our organisation and challenging ourselves to ensure that our work is truly best-in-class. As we become the leading organisation, it is important that we also give more people access to progressive services that we provide, which is why we are also prioritising growing our organisation.”

Neil concludes, “We feel confident that our five year strategy is as sustainable as it is ambitious, and look forward to Community Integrated Care setting a higher standard for the UK care sector over the coming five years.”
