PQASSO (Practical Quality Assurance System) is the leading quality standard developed for the third sector, by the sector. It is highly regarded within the sector and recognised by funders and commissioners.
We were reviewed by an external peer reviewer allocated by CES (Charity Evaluation Services) against all 12 Pqasso quality areas. We successfully met all the requirements for each areas and, in particular, final report indicated that we have shown strength in User-centred Service, Managing Money, Managing Resources, and Monitoring & Evaluation.
Achieving PQASSO provides a reflection of the high quality of the services offered by DERMAN and the ways in which the organisation is managed.
