Quality Performance Marks

We were delighted to be awarded the Advocacy Quality Performance Mark in 2016.

Jacqui Jobson, Director of Advocacy Centre North said:

“Advocacy Centre North welcomes the assessment for the QPM, particularly references to us having the client at the heart of the process and our clarity about confidentiality, empowerment and independence. The process was supportive and constructive and the team felt motivated by the opportunity to reflect on our successes.”
