Joseph Musgrave
CEO, Home and Community Care Ireland (HCCI)

Joseph Musgrave has led Home and Community Care Ireland (HCCI) since 2018, bringing an essential mix of leadership and partnership to homecare in Ireland. Joseph passionately believes in an individual’s right to quality, regulated home care and that ‘There is no Place Like Home’.

Through his leadership of HCCI, Joseph has been at the forefront of reforming Ireland’s home care system, both in terms of assisting the development of regulations and securing a better deal from the health service for our home care staff.  Joseph firmly believes we must ensure we get it right for those providing care as well as those in receipt of care.

Over the last six years, as CEO of HCCI, Joseph has led an important public discussion about home care by highlighting the challenges the sector faces whilst putting a spotlight on the great work its member organisations and their 12,000 carers do for their 20,000 clients every day.

HCCI is acutely aware of the significant and important role care in the home will continue to play in the lives of older and more vulnerable people for decades to come.

On behalf of HCCI, Joseph has publicly said that Ireland is at a critical juncture when it comes to care of older people. Giving everyone a legal right to home care will mean that we will have to reimagine our home care service so that it can deliver for all those who need it – and all of us who will need it in the future.  We must have a constructive and considered national conversation about this.  HCCI, led by Joseph, will continue to advocate for an ambitious reform agenda, engaging with all parties to make meaningful progress.

Prior to leading HCCI Joseph was Chief of Staff for leading Communication Consultancy firm WPP Burson-Marsteller.  Previously he held a key role in the ‘Freedom to Marry’ campaign for the Conservative Party in the UK.
