ECA Member Briefings

ECA hosts regular briefing meetings for members free of charge. These are held at a number of different venues across the county and can be held as breakfast meetings or during the day. Topics are items of interest to members e.g. Safeguarding, CQC compliance, etc.

“The breakfast briefing held in June 2011 about completing the CQC Provider Compliance Assessments was very helpful. It has given me the confidence to start work on this and keep in closer touch with my CQC inspector.”

Care Quality Commission Feedback

ECA meets regularly with the Care Quality Commission to represent social care providers across Essex, Southend and Thurrock. Feedback from these meetings is made available to ECA members through regular news feed items.

ECA Regular Newsletters

ECA members are kept updated on news and information relevant to the social care sector by regular ECA newsletters.
