Established in November 2010, NASRA fosters excellence in diverse areas of industrial relations, health legislation, pay and conditions, the domains of education, policy, practice, organisational development and research. NASRA will influence these domains through the core values of leadership, open communication, development, alliance, advocacy, diversity, stewardship and professional ethics. Being member driven and member led, NASRA is committed to facilitating and supporting opportunities for dynamic interaction and participation amongst the membership. We will provide forums within our association for collaborative relationships, partnerships and networks through committee membership right up to our Association Executive.

Historically Irish society has outcast those who attempt to change the old order. It has condemned those who stand with conviction against what they perceive to be unjust, and punishes those who have the courage to do so. We will be subjected to all of this, but our values and our attempt to facilitate a new order which is inclusive for all, is one of honour and as such a worthy cause. We have been delighted with the response from our National Ambulance service colleagues to this initiative and with the vision for a better future we look forward to working together to making that vision a reality.
