The Assocation aspires to set the standards that become the policies adopted and acclaimed by governments and health professionals in the UK.
In addition, the Association ensures that the profession and its members are acting in the best interests of the public.
NACAS has a set of membership rules that it expects its members to reasonably abide by, including its Code of Ethics. NACAS does not impose restrictions and conditions or enforcement on its members. However, we reserve the right to cancel an individuals membership where the rules and code of conducts are not adhered to.
The Association lobbies at local, regional and national levels to ensure that members have access to development opportunities suited to their skills and aspirations.
The Association will work with employers to recognise your contribution to service delivery and reward you appropriately for your skills and responsibilities.
Making your voice heard
The people who are members of the Association ARE the Association. Association members can make their views known. Members can put themselves forward for election as members of the Board of Directors – the organisation's policy and decision making body.
