Newcastle Women's Aid are delighted to announce that we have passed Stage 1 of the Women's Aid Federation England (WAFE) National Quality Standards (NQS), in June 2014.
The WAFE Standards form a set of accredited criteria through which dedicated specialist services addressing Domestic Violence & Abuse perpetrated against women & children can evidence their quality. There is a formal accreditation process organisations are required to complete to evidence they meet the standards.
WHAT NQS STAGE 1 ACCREDITATION MEANS TO US
"achieving this accreditation is formal recognition to the organisation & staff team for the commitment & quality services offered to women & children who need our services"
NWA will continue the process to stage 2 & will keep you informed of progress.
