Accreditation

LimeCulture provides a programme of independent accreditation and monitoring against two separate Quality Standards:

  • Quality Standards for Services Supporting Male Victims / Survivors
  • Quality Standards for Independent Sexual Violence Adviser (ISVA) services

Quality Standards improve the overall quality and consistency of  service provision. During the development and consultation phases of both sets of Quality Standards, providers and commissioners reported that there is a need to ensure that standards are applied consistently and that these should be independently verified.

LimeCulture’s Independent Accreditation Programme includes a six stage process that incorporates a documentary evidence review, interviews and a site visit. Services assessed as meeting the Quality Standards achieve an independent Quality Mark and are then subject to on-going monitoring.
