Hazel Phillips appointed board member of NASAP
RWK Goodman is delighted to announce that Hazel Phillips, Partner and Head of the Health and Social Care team, has been appointed as a board member of NASAP (the National Association of Supported Accommodation Partners), a not for profit organisation.
NASAP is the country’s only fully incorporated association for providers of supported accommodation for 16 and 17 years olds who have been placed by a local authority. Since the end of October, these providers are required to register with OFSTED and will be routinely inspected from April 2024.
NASAP will provide bespoke training, peer-to-peer support programmes, regional networking events, a national conference and an online community of best practice for the sector.
Hazel Phillips said:
“Helping disadvantaged young people is something I feel passionate about so I am delighted to have been given this opportunity to work with NASAP. I am very much looking forward to collaborating with the other board members, who all have a fantastic range of skills and experience in children’s services, and to offer legal advice and support to members via the wider RWK Goodman team”.
