Quality Standards for Services Supporting Male Victims/Survivors of Sexual Violence
Independent Accreditation Programme

News today from Lime Culture that Sunderland Counselling Service has been successful in applying for a  funded place to participate in the Independent Accreditation Programme for the Quality Standards for Services Supporting Male Victims/Survivors of Sexual Violence in 2019.

The Independent Accreditation Programme is delivered by LimeCulture CIC. The programme will award a Quality Mark to services that demonstrate they meet the Quality Standards through a robust and independent accreditation process of documentary evidence review, interviews and site visits.

The Quality Standards create a framework and benchmark that can be used to develop and improve service provision for male victims/survivors, in particular recognising their gender-based needs.

There are 24 Quality Standards across four domains; Leadership & Governance, Access & Engagement, Service Delivery and Outcomes & Evaluation. They set out the expectations of the organisation’s leadership, staff and also the client experience.
