NOPCHA is a not for profit company representing the interests of independent older persons’ care homes in Norfolk. It was set up following the successful Fair Price for Care, Fair Pay for Carers campaign that did much to highlight the very unfair commercial advantage enjoyed by the Council’s own care home company NorseCare and to encourage Norfolk County Council to increase fees for council funded residents in independent homes. It is anticipated that these issues will continue to be a major focus until such time as there is a level playing field for all Norfolk care providers and Council fees that can genuinely sustain a resilient care home market.
