In December 1985, twelve authorities held an initial meeting to discuss the role of the caterer in social services, as many local authorities had started to realise the importance of catering in the caring role. As the authorities differed in population, environment, political control or management structure the resources for the catering officers varied. It was for this reason that twelve authorities decided to form an Advisory Body for Social Services Catering (ABSSC).

The original twelve were Bolton, Manchester, Durham, Avon, Lancashire, Bradford, Cleveland, Leeds, Calderdale, Cumbria, Nottinghamshire and Humberside.

On 12th September 2002 the members voted at the AGM to accept the proposed name change to the National Association of Care Catering (NACC), a name chosen to reflect the changes taking place in the care sector, and to encompass the members from the private sector of the care industry.
