Code of Practice front CoverCode of Practice

The UKHCA Code of Practice provides the guidelines to enable UKHCA member organisations providing home care to operate in such a way that:

  • The highest standards of care are provided
  • The rights and welfare of clients are paramount
  • The rights and welfare of care workers are protected

All member organisations of the UKHCA are bound by the Code and are required to comply with it. This enables the organisation to publicise that it is ‘working to the UKHCA Code of Practice standards’.

A copy of the Code should be given to all care workers and clients, or the client’s representative.
