PQASSO Quality Mark Accreditation


Congratulations to our staff, volunteers and Trustees in working collectively (as usual) to achieve PQASSO Quality Mark and the Charity Commission endorsement! This accreditation exercise was funded by Lloyds Bank Foundation so, thanks to our funders also. The inspection left no stones unturned and found us exemplary in all 12 Quality Areas. We cruised through the one day exercise, preventing the need for additional time and were pleased following the day’s experience, to be immediately informed of our successful outcome. The full report evidences the quality and quantity of our involvement with the organisation overall, and the detailed attention paid to ensuring all needs (as appropriate and beyond) are professionally and unequivocally addressed.


Summary of findings


A brief summary of the findings of the review including quality areas that were met and areas where indicators were not met.


The organisation is led by a Chief Executive who has a clear vision for the organisation and an effective leadership style. The Chair has a wide experience of the issues involved and an enthusiasm for the work.


Support and team working are fully embedded throughout the organisation in systems, procedures and practices. There is effective communication both vertical and horizontal throughout the organisation. People at all levels felt well supported and motivated and morale was high with everyone expressing the feeling that they were part of the whole team and their contributions valued.


There are effective systems in place to record activities and support monitoring both of finance and confidential information on stakeholders and users. The collection and analysis of data has led to high quality research and surveys on results for users, with regular reports and feedback. Their work is well integrated with other relevant voluntary and statutory services and they are strategically active on a wide range of networks. There is evidence that this networking and data recording has been significant in maintaining and developing funding and services. There is a culture of supporting learning through coaching and training. They are well respected by statutory and voluntary organisations alike.


Everyone in the organisation is aware of, and has had a part to play in working through the PQASSO quality standard.
