Help Us to Make a Difference

Local Care Direct is a social enterprise. For our patients and partners this means we are a values-driven organisation, focused on serving and caring for people.

We value actions above words and this should be evident in what you see and experience when you are in our care. In our teams we value and recognise professionalism, honesty, openness and, above all, caring.

We champion diversity and promote equality and teamwork. In business, we measure success by our ability to develop sustainable services which care for people, put their interests first and deliver positive health and wellbeing outcomes for each individual.

As a business which is funded by the public we also have a duty to ensure we operate effectively and efficiently, and that we are sustainable, by reinvesting financial surpluses into our services and the community.

Our members are a vital link with the communities we serve, providing views, experience and ideas. We want to grow our membership with people who can contribute to our mission to improve the experience and outcomes for people using our services.

We offer individual and corporate membership and would love to hear from other third sector organizations and special interest groups who can bring knowledge about vulnerable patients and those with specific needs.
