Trusted Standard

Trusted Standard helps charities and voluntary organisations improve the quality of their work, and communicate that quality through accreditation.

About Trusted Standard

Trusted Standard is NCVOs quality mark for charities and voluntary organisations. It’s designed to help staff, volunteers and trustees get involved in assessing how well their organisation is doing.

The Growth Company delivers Trusted Standard on behalf of NCVO. The Trusted Standard team will guide you through a self-assessment process to identify what you do well and where you could develop. An action plan will help you work towards Trusted Standard accreditation. Support is available from Trusted Standard practitioners on your journey.

Feedback from customers

As a trustee of a new charity this has been extremely useful in highlighting issues and the assistance available.

Trustee at Voluntary Action Leicestershire

The initial conversation was great; Gill was very friendly and professional. You could tell she was extremely knowledgeable about the ins and outs of charities, and how these types of organisations tend to work.

Lucy Watling, quality and development manager at YMCA Trinity Group

Every time I use the Trusted Standard with organisations it just reinforces what a wonderful, unique and accessible vehicle it is to support organisations and their staff. I feel this programme really has made a difference.
