We are proud to have achieved the 2018 Charity Quality Standard for local Age UKs in England which recognise the high standard of our performance as an organisation and the 2018 Information and Advice Quality Marque for the work carried out through our Information and Advice Service.
These awards followed rigorous examination of evidence of our work and a full assessment visit by leading experts.
The Standards are externally assessed and awarded to local Age UKs which have demonstrated that they are well-governed and effective organisations committed to the well-being of older people, its staff and volunteers, and to working in partnership with others.
The Standards are endorsed by the Charity Commission, the regulatory body for charities.
The Charity Commission only endorses quality systems that meet its challenging benchmark for comprehensive, robust and objective assessments of how charities are run.
Endorsed quality systems encourage compliance and accountability, and test for those key aspects of a charity's governance that are most likely to produce a well-run, accountable and sustainable organisation.
