Care City is hosted by its founding partners, NELFT and the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham, and in the longer term will become a joint venture.

The work of Care City is overseen by an executive group, chaired by NELFT chief executive John Brouder and LBBD Corporate Director of Adult and Community Services, Anne Bristow.

In addition, the Care City Steering Group, made up of UK and global leaders from industry, technology, research, health and social care has been established to advise the executive group.
