Quality 4 Health + Wellbeing is not just a standard self-assessment process:  Tiered over 3 levels, it caters and is suitable for smaller groups and larger organisations.  Quality 4 Health + Wellbeing is an evidence-based approach which allows VCSE organisations opportunities for reflection and evaluation of their service delivery, highlighting the impact these services make on people’s lives as well as the role played as part of the wider Health & Care System.

We are delighted to showcase the investment to subsidise Calderdale VCSE sector organisations of all sizes to sign up and undertake the Quality4Health+Wellbeing Accreditation at no charge to them.  This full subsidy will be available until the end of year (31st Dec 2021).  You will be supported in your quality journey by a dedicated team and through the VSI Alliance networks and developments be routed into a range of emerging and interesting opportunities. We recognise this is particularly important for organisations looking to secure their footing for a positive future following the turbulence of Covid-19.

Sign up by 31st Decemmber 2021
