QiB lasts for three year. Six months before QiB expires, it's time to start thinking about Reaccreditation.

“Working on the award gives you the opportunity to evaluate your practice in more detail and to ensure the work you are doing it up to the standard expected.”

About Reaccreditation

Reaccreditation involves providing evidence for a portion of the original QiB Award/Excellence indicators along with a site visit, at which time, pre-arranged interviews with staff, befrienders and befriendees will be conducted.
