KITEMARKS

PQASSO

PQASSO helps third sector organisations take a systematic look at what they do, identify areas where they are doing well and not so well, and decide exactly where improvements are needed.

PQASSO covers all aspects of an organisation's work including governance, planning, leadership and management, managing people, managing money and outcomes and impact.

Once an organisation has implemented PQASSO it can apply for the PQASSO Quality Mark, the external accreditation for PQASSO, which shows that the organisation has achieved the PQASSO quality standard at a particular level.

DVSC received our Level 1 Quality Mark in October 2017

BECOME A SUPPORTER

Hello again … … today we have a small favour to ask. Volunteers, voluntary and community action and the third sector are at the heart of building more sustainable and resilient communities and we need them more than ever.

 

DVSC receives core funding from the Welsh Government but we need to raise more money so that we can continue to provide excellent sector support - whether you're a volunteer,  voluntary and community group or a third sector organisation.

 

We can provide a wealth of information and resources and we want to keep our services as accessible as we can, and to reach as many groups as we can.  So we think it’s fair to ask people who visit us often for their help - if they feel able to give it.

 

Our Sector Support service is resource intensive, but we are investing in it because we believe providing support to volunteers, voluntary and community groups, charities, social enterprises and community interest companies - has to be at the heart of what we do. If you like what we are about, and you want to help support it, our future would be much more secure.
