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

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.
