What is NACAS?

The National Association of Care and Support Workers (NACAS) is the recognised professional membership association for all presently-unregulated health and social care workers in the UK.

NACAS is owned and managed by its members.

Professional Recognition

NACAS dismisses the notion that care work is an unskilled job and promotes care and support work as a profession - a profession that is a career of choice, with a defined career path and specialisms (that should be rewarded accordingly).

...and its not just a career for the ladies, the chaps make fantastic care & support workers also...

By joining the Association, care and support workers demonstrate their passion for their vocation, and a willingness and commitment to set professional standards and a real desire to further their own personal development. Members agree with and adhere to the values set out within our Code of Ethics.

A Voice

NACAS continues to engage and connect with all the major social care stakeholders, employers, providers, and local and national governments to champion the care worker vocation, raise concerns and to ensure all care workers have a voice and are fully engaged in the debate.

Individual membership is only £3 a month.
