About Community Integrated Care

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

We’re a charity that believes people should live as independently as possible, and by taking time to help them explore new ideas and habits around using energy, you are also helping them save money to buy things that matter the most to them.

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’.
