NACCC is a membership organisation whose centres help around 17000 children a year in their 340 accredited centres. There are two kinds of centres supported centres are a vital part of many communities. Supervised centres are used for cases where there is a risk of harm. These centres are run by around 4000 volunteer and 1000 employed staff.
