Welcome to the Independent Care Group

Who are we?

The Independent Care Group is the recognised representative body for independent care providers in York and North Yorkshire. We are a non-profit organisation with a Board of Directors who work on a voluntary basis for the benefit of the independent and voluntary care industry.

Who do we work with?

We work 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. This includes older people and those with dementia; people with physical disabilities; those with mental health issues and individuals with learning disabilities.
