About Community Integrated Care

Community Integrated Care is one of the UK’s largest and most successful social care charities.

We support more than 3000 people across England and Scotland who have learning disabilities, autism, mental health concerns and dementia, reaching thousands more in our pioneer community programmes.

We’re proud to be recognised for our impact and innovation, including being named as the Charity Times ‘Charity Of The Year’.
