The NAS is a sector-led accreditation and certification process for community legal centres (CLCs) across Australia. The scheme was launched in 2010 as a joint initiative between NACLC and State/Territory CLC Associations.
Following a comprehensive review of the first phase of the NAS, a number of changes were recommended to improve the standards and the assessment process. These recommended changes have been the subject of extended consultation with the sector and with other stakeholders.
A Steering Committee was established at the National level to oversee the consultation on the proposed amendments to the NAS and to make appropriate changes. CLCA(WA) Executive Director, Helen Creed is a member of the Steering Committee.
The Steering Committee has approved the changes for the second phase of the NAS, so we are ready to go!
