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.
