The Quality 4 Health + Wellbeing accreditation has been used by a wide variety of groups, ranging from very small to national organisations, delivering a diverse range of services.

Below you will find testimonials from many of these, illustrating how having the Quality 4 Health + Wellbeing standard has helped them in all aspects of their service delivery.

It has provided the opportunity to enhance our high standards of quality across the organisation with a key focus on health outcomes for service users allowing us to assess for ourselves the ability to confirm we are offering a person centred approach to the support we provide, and that positive outcomes are achieved with robust policies and procedures in place

“Memory Lane Cafe Calderdale found the process itself very helpful and instructive. It highlighted certain areas on which we needed to focus attention to  improve what and how we do things. In doing this it also pointed us towards opportunities to do things differently. Reassuringly, the process also confirmed to us that much of what we do was being done well already – hooray!”

Chris Harvey, Memory Lane Cafe Calderdale

Our world is changing rapidly, and we are here to enable the VCSE to become integral to local provision for the benefit of local people

Local Authorities

We are currently working with a number of Local Authorities to support the development of the voluntary and community sector.  We are achieving this by helping to demonstrate the quality and outcomes for their services users and supporting organisations to be ready to deliver public sector contracts, such as social prescribing. We could also support Local Authorities to improve quality within your care home settings by offering a bespoke support package.

Clinical Commissioning Groups

Quality For Health was developed in partnership with Calderdale CCG. We are working with a number of CCGs who are interested in quality assurance for voluntary and community organisations delivering health services, enabling them to demonstrate the difference their organisations make to services users and patients by delivering high quality services. CCGs may be interested to support their local voluntary and community sector and be more confident around commissioning and referrals through working with Quality For Health. Quality For Health can also support priorities laid out in the NHS Long Term Plan, such as social prescribing and supporting organisations delivering prevention, mental health and support for carers. 

Quality For Health can also be used as a useful tool in bringing partners together to develop Primary Care Networks.
