Welcome to Devon
Care Homes Collaborative

We are a membership organisation that provides support to care home providers, managers and staff in Devon, Plymouth and Torbay.


We provide support by sharing best practice, providing inspiration, stimulating innovation, enabling peer to peer learning, and supporting the development of a financially sustainable care sector that understands and meets the common needs of our members.

We have built on the years of positive collaboration work that has taken place by Devon Care Kitemark and responded to the increased desire and need for co-operation in the sector to deal with Covid-19.

We work collaboratively with our key stakeholders; the local authority, NHS and Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG,) Devon STP, Proud to Care and others to support those working in the sector who strive to provide good quality care for those in need.

"As a small residential home for 18-65, DCHC has been invaluable for advice and reassurance. We live in Bude but half our residents come from Devon. This help has been so useful especially over COVID and hospital experience."

DCHC member, Gill, New Witheven Care Home

"As a new registered provider into adult social care, I have found the DCHC group very welcoming. There is always a topical discussion which you can tap into as well as a forum to ask questions from the very knowledgeable members. I would highly recommend membership."
