In the last few weeks, NCVO has taken the decision to close Trusted Charity (previously PQASSO).

As a result, we would like to introduce you to Improving Quality (IQ), another Quality Scheme based on the original PQASSO. The scheme was created by a number of people previously involved in PQASSO and is clear, simple, and focuses on the key issues that make a difference for charities. IQ can either be used for self-assessment or accreditation and a number of organisations in the UK already accredited to it.

We are delighted that to share details of a workshop to be held on the 19th April 2021. This workshop will introduce the Quality Standard and what undertaking it entails. It will also consider how organisations can transition from Trusted Charity to Improving Quality without undertaking additional work.
