Annnual Training & Development Forum, reduced rates for members:
The NACC Training & Development Forum is the UK's biggest care catering event. Designed for care catering professionals to develop professionalism and standards, the event includes accredited workshops, CPD seminars and keynote speakers. Taking part will fill you with inspiration. You can tailor the day to suit your specific needs and you'll also get to sample and test the latest innovations in care catering products and services.

Regional meetings to discuss key issues:
Try to attend your NACC regional meeting at least twice a year. There's always something valuable to learn and someone new to meet. There's no better way of improving what you do than by exchanging experience and ideas with your peers on a face-to-face, informal basis.
Connect with other members via the NACC website:
Get in touch with other care homes. If you have a question, ask them and network. After all, you're all in the same boat and face the same daily challenges.

The NACC has a fantastic range of publications on feeding the elderly and young adults. They are all written by experts in their field and designed to help make your job easier. From weekly menu planning guides to government specifications on dietary needs, you͛ll find it all. And, as a member you receive big discounts when you place your order.
