NACAS is a professional membership organisation for the paid care/support worker, and as such sets out to represent the care working vocation and the individuals working as such in the sector. NACAS is not a regulator, neither the Association itself or its member register has been mandated by Government to act as such. NACAS campaigns for greater recognition and respect for care workers, alongside improved standards of care delivery, training, fair contractural terms and official registration. 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.https://www.nacas.org.uk/

The Care Workers Charity
The Care Workers' Charity was founded in 2009 with the objective of supporting current and former care workers with one-off crisis grants. In 2018 we awarded over £150,000 in grants to almost 400 care workers – nearly four times as many people as in 2017. In 2019 we expect to award even more.https://www.thecareworkerscharity.org.uk/
National Care Association
National Care Association is particularly well connected across the health and care sector; from our members who provide the care and support through to our working relationship with Ministers and Senior Civil Servants. We represent our members by being around the table when it matters – ensuring the voice of the care sector is heard.
On a practical level National Care Association is an essential part of the care provider’s toolkit. Our members benefit from DBS online services, toolkits, business and bulk purchase discounts, legal and employment advice, as well as information, support and guidance through the regulatory and policy issues that affect us all. https://nationalcareassociation.org.uk/
