CCPS

CCPS is the Coalition of Care and Support Providers in Scotland.

Its mission is to identify, represent, promote and safeguard the interests of third sector and not-for-profit social care and support providers in Scotland, so that they can maximise the impact they have on meeting social need.

CCPS membership comprises over 70 of the most substantial care and support providers in Scotland’s third sector, working right across the spectrum of social care.

The combined membership of CCPS:

  • supports approximately 300,000 people and their families in Scotland
  • manages a total annual income in excess of £1.3 billion (2010-11), a significant proportion of which relates to publicly funded service provision
  • employs approximately 45,000 staff and mobilises the support of over 7,000 volunteers in providing services
  • works in all 32 of Scotland's council areas, with many members also providing services elsewhere in the UK and internationally.

CCPS aims to:

  • Champion quality care and support provided by the third sector
  • Challenge policy and practice that inhibits or undermines the sector’s ability to provide quality care and support
  • Prepare providers for future challenges and opportunities
  • Support providers to understand, negotiate and influence the complex policy and practice environment in which they operate.
