Introducing the Quality Performance Mark

Welcome to the Advocacy Quality Performance Mark website.

This site provides all the information you need to find out more about the QPM, register your interest and work towards achieving the Award.

The QPM has been reviewed and re-launched following extensive consultation with advocacy providers, national stakeholders and commissioners.  This, the 3rd edition, has been updated to reflect changes in both practice and legislation.  The Assessment Process has been streamlined to allow for a greater focus on the quality of services delivered by organisations.

The QPM is available to providers of independent advocacy in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.  It does not cover Scotland.

For further information, please see our Frequently Asked Questions.
