Berkshire charity achieves national quality standard

Categories: News

Berkshire charity ABC to Read have achieved a national award which formally recognises the high standard of their work.

login-logoABC to Read fieldworker Lindsey Livingstone picked up the Gold SQP (Slough Quality Protects) Award and said: “This nationally recognised award is testimony to the incredibly high standards that ABC to Read achieves and maintains in all of its work with young children and we are thrilled to receive it.”

The Slough Quality Protects programme has been developed by the Voluntary Sector to help organisations demonstrate the quality of their work in a coherent and consistent way. It is designed to help local community and voluntary organisations to think about and clarify their principles and values and to be able to show this in their day to day operations.

ABC to Read is always looking for more volunteers and schools are eligible to use the government allocated pupil premium to use as a donation to help the charity cover the cost of the volunteers’ support and training. The charity hopes to run the next round of training in Slough soon and would encourage all those interested to email: abctoread@btconnect.com
