Do you want to strengthen governance, deliver better services for users, improve operating practices and better demonstrate outcomes in your third sector organisation?
It is increasingly important for third sector organisations in
Wales to demonstrate their performance, effectiveness and impact to
funders, commissioners, users and other stakeholders.
PQASSO helps third sector organisations take a systematic look
at what they do, identify areas where they are doing well and not
so well, and decide exactly where improvements are needed.
PQASSO covers all aspects of an organisation's work including
governance, planning, leadership and management, managing people,
managing money and outcomes and impact. Once an organisation has
implemented PQASSO it can apply for the PQASSO Quality Mark, the
external accreditation for PQASSO, which shows that the
organisation has achieved the PQASSO quality standard at a
We are really pleased to be working in partnership with National
Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) in promoting and
delivering the PQASSO for Wales project, which is funded by the Big

this exciting project aims to strengthen third sector organisations
by helping them to improve their governance, to improve quality of
services for users, to develop more effective and efficient systems
and procedures and create a culture of continuous improvement.

PQASSO Essentials pilot
Whilst PQASSO's flexibility means it can be, and is, used by all
types and sizes of third sector organisations, we also know that
particularly small third sector groups and
organisations sometimes need a step before
PQASSO to help them review how well their group or
organisation is doing and how it can develop and strengthen.
PQASSO Essentials is intended to do just that.
PQASSO Essentials is intended to help smaller,
third sector groups and organisations that:
- May never have reviewed their whole group or organisation and
that want to do a basic 'health check' to know which areas they
need to develop and strengthen
- Want to start to introduce and embed quality and continuous
improvement in their work
- Need a framework to support the development of their group or
- Want to be more effective and efficient in how they work.
