Evaluation of PQASSO

Resources for Change have been commissioned by the Charities Evaluation Service (CES) to evaluate the ongoing development of a Welsh and online quality standard for organisations' governance in the third sector. The programme originated in 2012 at a Welsh third sector working group who agreed that a Welsh programme to support good governance in the third sector in Wales would be valuable and could be based on the existing Charities Evaluation Services’ PQASSO quality standards.

Over the next five years, CES will develop a distinctively Welsh tool, including an online self-assessment system that will be available in both Welsh and English. The programme will also seek to explore and address barriers to participation in PQASSO through providing practical solutions, such as bursaries.

Resources for Change are delighted to be working to collaboratively evaluate this innovative programme. In the evaluation we will be drawing out learning around the impact of PQASSO on the sector and the sector beneficiaries as well as looking into the process of applying the quality mark in Wales.
