Consultation responses

The Government and other public bodies often run public consultation exercises to seek the views of the public and other stakeholders in order to inform the development of new laws and policies.

The NAFD responds to all public consultations that we believe we can add value to, or that have the potential to impact on the interests of our members or the families they serve.

Responding to public consultations is just one of the ways that we seek to influence Government policy on behalf of members.

Position statements

Some questions are of such central importance to the profession that it would not be appropriate for the NAFD to wait to be asked before making our view known.

Publishing position statements is our way of formally communicating our position on certain pivotal issues to members and the outside world.
