ABOUT US 

Established 21 years ago, the Independent Care Group (iCG) is a non-profit organisation that works on behalf of care homes, domiciliary care agencies, supported living, specialist extra care housing providers and day care centres, both in the private and voluntary sectors across North Yorkshire and York.

 

With a Board of Directors who work, on a voluntary basis, for the benefit of the independent and voluntary care industry, iCG speaks up for social care, works for a better future for social care and is actively working towards a National Care Service.  

The Independent Care Group works, on an ongoing basis, alongside the statutory local authorities, including North Yorkshire Council, City of York Council, all the Clinical Commissioning Groups in North Yorkshire plus the Care Quality Commission. 

We act as a professional conduit, passing on the concerns of providers and working to find solutions to issues such as fee rates, contracts, terms and assistance through learning. 

iCG also ensures care providers have input into quality standards and assessments, so that they are clear and achievable. 

iCG promotes the care sector by lobbying politicians, both in person and by regular media releases to national newspapers and regional television. We also have an extensive social media presence, making sure that adult social care is at the forefront of people’s minds.
