Going for Excellence

Services can choose to apply for QiB Excellence as part of the initial application by submitting evidence against all of the Excellence indicators as well as the QiB Award indicators. 

Alternately, services may choose to focus on obtaining the QiB Award first and, afterward, work toward Excellence. Service are given 3 months to complete an upgrade to QiB Excellence as part of the same application (although upgraded applications will be given the same expiry date as the original award). 

Interested? Review the QiB Application Guide and Indicator List and then call Befriending Networks 0131 261 8799 and ask for Angus Maclean, Quality Officer or email Angus@befriending.co.uk.
