BETTERCARING

BETTERCARING offers a searchable database of all Care Quality Commission (CQC) registered residential and nursing homes in the United Kingdom: You can search by location or the type of home you need. Choosing the right care home is critical and there is a wealth of information available to help you.

DEPARTMENT FOR WORK & PENSIONS

The DWP site  contains information regarding pensions, additional benefits and support for vulnerable members of society, including those people who may have a disability.

AGE UK

Age Concern supports all people over 50 in the UK, ensuring that they get the most from life. We provide essential services such as day care and information. We campaign on issues like age discrimination and pensions, and work to influence public opinion and government policy about older people.

THE CARE QUALITY COMMISSION

CQC’s primary function is to promote improvements in social care. And we will do this by putting the people who use social care services firmly at the centre of our work. We will be guided by what they tell us and we will act in their interests.
