Code of Ethics

In order to deliver on its mission, the National Association of Care and Support Workers wants to elevate the profession and protect the vulnerable members of the public we serve by ensuring that as care workers and members we are competent and act in an ethical manner. NACAS's own Code of Ethics accomplishes this objective by providing guidance to CSW's as to what is acceptable professional conduct, and by establishing and encouraging the acceptance and maintenance of nationwide standards of knowledge and ethics for all CSW's. The Code of Ethics sets out the principles that guide member conduct.

In Wales, this Code of Ethics promotes and endorses the Social Care Wales' Code of Professional Practice in Social Care, and likewise endorses similar Codes of Professional Practice currently applicable in England, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

The NACAS Code of Ethics consists of four overarching common-sense principles.

Working with Skill and Competence

Working with Integrity and Respect for the Law

A Commitment to Respect and Dignity

A Commitment to Professional Growth and Support of Care Practitioners
