We have and will continue to work closely with all Government bodies and associated partners throughout the United Kingdom to ensure that policy changes are informed by evidence – this is your chance to make sure your voice is heard.

Although our core membership continues to be from the statutory and voluntary sector Community Equipment Services, who provide a vital service in the provision of health / social care equipment on a loan basis to meet the needs of residents within their locality.
In recent years our membership has significantly increased and has been complimented with the introduction of new membership categories to embrace all equipment providers such as the Retailers and Supplier & Manufacturers.
