Join HCCI

HCCI was formed in 2012 to represent private home care providers who wished to benefit from peer to peer learning, to develop best practice, and to work together to advocate for and create the best possible home care landscape across the country.

Advocating

HCCI is the only full-time professional association in Ireland that represents the home care sector.  We are open to private providers and non-profits alike.

HCCI exists to represent the interests of our members, and the wider sector, to Government and the HSE.  We also make the case for home care in the media, often being called upon to comment by the likes of RTÉ, the Irish Times, the Irish Examiner, and a host of local outlets.

Sector Networking

One of the most important benefits to HCCI membership is the opportunity to network with peers in the sector.  In ordinary times, HCCI hosts four dedicated member meetings each year and these take place across the country.  They allow members to discuss issues they experience, access decades of experience within home care and put pressing problems forward to HCCI.  

Being a member of HCCI also entitles you to attend our Annual Conference, a marquee event for home care which has been running since 2019 and secures broad national media coverage with attendance from key stakeholders in Government, the HSE and beyond.
