How did NASACRE start?
In March 1993, representatives of SACREs met to set up and formally constitute a National Association of SACREs. This followed the implementation of the Education Reform Act [ERA 1988] and the statutory powers and responsibilities now entrusted to the local SACREs.
The new National Association (NASACRE) was launched in 1993 in the House of Lords in the presence of religious leaders and the then Minister of State for Education, Baroness Blatch.
For the launch, the National Association published its aims and has subsequently developed a mission statement. These continue to provide the focus for NASACRE' programmes and activities.
