NACAS was founded by care worker Paul Featherstone in 2016. This was in response to the fact that care workers were the only social care workforce group that did not have its own representative professional body, formal support network or career development opportunities.
NACAS is founded as a nonprofit social movement and through its accredited membership brings care workers across the UK together. What is unique about us is that we are a strong united community of care workers, helping and supporting each other to be the best care professional we can . We operate as a professional body and have a Code of Ethics and Conduct which helps to demonstrate a commitment to the highest professional standards
We believe care workers are special and a precious resource. By joining NACAS not only will you recieve lots of member goodies and training opportunities, you will also help us as we engage with all the major social care stakeholders and government in our ongoing quest to see care workers be regarded as highly skilled care professionals in their own right.
