Peer review service will award quality mark
A peer review benchmarking service that claims to help charities prove their credentials to potential funders is going to be offered to the sector.
Charities Evaluation Services has trained a group of representatives from a range of charities to carry out assessments based on its Practical Quality Assurance System for Small Organisations evaluation workbook, which has been used by more than 12,000 organisations to assess their viability.
Organisations that pass the assessment will be given a quality mark. CES has carried out the first assessment and is making the service more widely available.
Mirella Grillo, service coordinator at CES, said organisations were looking for a chance to demonstrate to funders that they were "beacons of good practice".
