June 2014 - important announcement. The Association is in the process of changing its name to the Care Co-ordination Association. This was voted by the members and reflects an organisation that continues to support and develop good practice for all service users and carers building on the incredible history of CPAA. Our hope in the coming years is that we can share this good practice with others supporting people with long term conditions and as a consequence expand our membership securing the future for the association.
Welcome to the CPAA
The CPAA was established in 1993 on an informal basis to support the implementation, operation, and development of the Care Programme Approach. Membership grew considerably, which led to the need for more formal arrangements in 1996 with funding from the Department of Health. Today the Association gives support to people involved in implementing the CPA and Care and Treatment Planning in Wales, particularly Co-ordinators and Managers. The Association is endorsed by the Department of Health in their document ‘Modernising the CPA’ and membership is recommended in the CPA Audit pack. The Association is funded through annual subscriptions from member organisations and is a not for profit organisation.

All too often the pockets of poor practice in health and social care are the things that make the headlines. The annual CCA Awards are an opportunity for staff and organisations to raise the profile and highlight some of the areas of excellent practice that are happening across the CCA membership. Comments from organisational managers reflect how thrilled and proud they are when their staff are recognised in this way. Winners will receive: a quality mark; certificate; and feature in ‘The Approach’. The certificates will be presented at our national event "Being Well: Physically and Mentally" on 31st October in Manchester. Use these awards to your advantage – raise your service / department / organisations profile.
