It is important that our members’ views and concerns are represented at the highest level. Therefore, we continue to work closely with partners and stakeholders to lobby key decision makers in respect of the key issues affecting our members and the sector as a whole.

The Care Provider Alliance (CPA) brings together the eleven main national associations, which represent independent and voluntary adult social care providers in England.  We work to represent the sector and ensure a coordinated response to the major issues that affect it.​
ARC England continue to be a stakeholder in the Care Quality Commission Trade Association and Care Quality Commission Co-Production Group as well as the following:
Care and Support Alliance (CSA)
Challenging Behaviour Foundation National Strategy Group (CB-NSG)
City and Guilds Health and Social Care Qualifications Network
The Cavendish Coalition
Think Local Act Personal (TLAP) Partnership
Transforming Care Agenda – Social Care Provider Reference Group
