02I32493How did NASACRE start?

In March 1993, representatives of SACREs met to set up and formally constitute a National Association of SACREs. This followed the implications of the Education Reform Act [ERA 1988] and the new powers and responsibilities 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.
