With the first set of provincial standards implemented by the Ministry of Community and Social Services in 2015, organizations in the Violence Against Women Services sector face new challenges to ensure they are both compliant with the new Ministry of Community and Social Services requirements and meeting the expectations of additional funders.
The FOCUS Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program can help you meet those standards – with best practices that will help you align with and go beyond the new requirements to deliver exceptional service to your community.
When your organization participates in the FOCUS Quality Improvement and Accreditation Program, you’ll create a culture of transparency, openness and continuous improvement that goes beyond compliance – it simply becomes a part of what you do every day. The accreditation process is positive, uplifting and inclusive – see what other organizations in the Violence Against Women Services sector have to say:
“What I valued most about FOCUS was the wonderful way they helped us through the process and wanted us to succeed. This was, in no way, an adversarial process. Staff and volunteers from FOCUS were highly trained and genuinely concerned as were we, in ensuring the highest quality service across all domains for our women and children. I would wholeheartedly recommend FOCUS to my colleagues as I think the arms-length accreditation process is increasingly essential for those we serve and those who fund us.”
