Autistic Nottingham has been awarded the Advocacy Quality Performance Mark (QPM) from the National Development Team for Inclusion (NDTi).

The QPM is the UK’s only independent quality performance mark for organisations offering independent advocacy; an essential service for people who need support to express their needs and have increased choice and control in their lives.

The Advocacy Quality Performance Mark is only awarded to advocacy organisations who can demonstrate that they are providing excellent services to people often experiencing challenging situations in their lives.  It indicates that they have the training and policies in place to ensure people’s rights are upheld and their preferences are heard and responded to.” – Gail Petty, QPM Manager and Lead for Advocacy and Rights, NDTi

Receiving this award shows that we are committed to delivering a high-quality Independent Advocacy service to our beneficiaries, which follows the standards laid out by the QPM and the advocacy charter.
