Service Standards


NEA Service Charter

The NEA Service Charter, CARE, sets out our collective commitment to deliver high standards in our work.

We carry out our work with dedication and passion, and embrace the following CARE principles to provide a trusted and reliable public service for all.

Collaborate - To work with stakeholders focusing on shared outcomes to address your needs.
Anticipate - To better understand the current and future needs of those who transact with us, and to think ahead for options to address issues to the best of our ability.
Reach out - To engage stakeholders and the wider public to understand and address their issues better.
Empathise - To be aware of your interests and concerns, and endeavour to meet them.

We are committed to deliver quality service. In doing so, we seek your cooperation to treat our officers with respect. We value our officers and have a zero-tolerance policy towards abuse. A firm stance will be taken against those who abuse our officers or services, such as making false or malicious reports.
