Become a member of HCCI

By joining HCCI, you will become part of Ireland’s only representative association for organisations that provide a managed home care service.

As a home care provider, you want to run an effective organisation, provide an exemplary service to your clients and offer meaningful work to your care staff.

HCCI wants to help you do that by providing a place for you to meet and discuss issues of the day with your peers.  HCCI also takes on the work of representing the industry’s interests with Government, the HSE, the Oireachtas and the media.  This frees you to do the work you are passionate about, whilst allowing you to contribute to the formation of HCCI’s industry positions.

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 right across the country.

In 2018, HCCI members voted to allow any provider who offers a managed home care service into the association.

HCCI holds regular member meetings, has a full-time professional staff, and is continually improving it’s offer to members.

We would be delighted to receive an application from you.  Please email for details about the application process, an application pack or any other queries you may have.
