*** Exclusive for Age UK partners***

New CQS passporting opportunity - lighter assessment and reduced assessment fee for Quality in Befriending!

Age UK and Befriending Networks are pleased to announce a new passporting arrangement that will enable any local Age UK or local Age Cymru partner with current (2022 version) CQS certification to ‘passport’ aspects of Quality in Befriending.

If your organisation wants to achieve Quality Award accreditation, the passporting arrangement means that you will be assessed against fewer of the Award indicators!

To start the Quality Award process, join us as a member of Befriending Networks and submit an application form. After the assessment fee has been paid, you will receive a free year’s membership as well as a £200 discount on your accreditation fee.
