“We joined ICHA about 15 years ago, branching out from the rather closed world of therapeutic communities, in order to be better informed about what our competitors, especially in the private sector, were thinking and doing.  We have never regretted it, have always found ICHA a rich source of information and mutual support.

We have participated in the leadership group, and ICHA remains one of our key partners in understanding and influencing what is happening in the children’s residential care (RCC) sector and in Government.

Under Peter Sandiford’s leadership, ICHA has become the essential ‘go-to’ industry body for both RCC Chief Executives and for Government.”
