Community Care Peterborough has been successful in its effort to be accredited by FOCUS Accreditation!

FOCUS Accreditation is pleased to announce that Community Care Peterborough has been successful in its effort to be accredited by FOCUS Accreditation for four years from May 2019 – May 2023.

Powered by volunteers and staff, Community Care Peterborough supports the health and wellbeing of individuals, caregivers and communities through a network of eight offices throughout the city and county of Peterborough.

FOCUS Accreditation looks at all aspects of how an organization provides services – from how people are supported to the effectiveness of the operations.  FOCUS Accreditation sent a team of five people to review Community Care Peterborough’s services onsite, for four days on April 8 – 11, 2019.  The team observed how services were provided, reviewed data, and collected input from various people who have a stake in the services being provided.

One of the many strengths identified at Community Care Peterborough by the FOCUS Validators was: Volunteers play an instrumental role in providing services and fulfilling the mission of Community Care Peterborough. Over 800 volunteers donate a total of 100,000 hours each year. This is equivalent to 58 full-time staff. Each volunteer contributes to the success of Community Care Peterborough.
