Working through Trusted Charity's eleven quality areas enables you to assess how your organisation is doing and plan further improvements

 

 

Two phases to your Trusted Charity journey:

Phase 1: Self-assessment

Implement the principles of the Trusted Charity Standard through self-assessment

Phase 2: External Accreditation

External assessment and awarding of the Trusted Charity Mark

Phase 1: Self-assessment

Trusted Charity is implemented using our online self-assessment tool that helps your organisation to take a systematic look at what you do, identify what you do well and where you could do better.
You can use this as a foundation for planning, budgeting and allocating resources for making improvements.

Phase 2: External Accreditation

Once you have completed your self-assessment and implemented your Trusted Charity action plans, you can apply for the Trusted Charity Mark accreditation.
This quality mark is awarded following external assessment by an independent assessor and is a demonstration of excellence throughout your organisation. Achieving the Mark also gives funders a clear indication of the quality of your work.
