Dial West Cheshire makes the grade again.

Staff and volunteers at Dial West Cheshire’s disability rights centre based at Dial House in Chester are celebrating after successfully achieving reaccreditation of the Advice Quality Standard (AQS), a nationally recognised quality mark for organisations providing free, independent advice to members of the public.

Keith Roper, Chief Officer at Dial West Cheshire, said “We are so pleased to have been awarded the AQS again. The Standard provides reassurance for clients, funders and ourselves that we offer a quality-assured service. The team of staff and volunteers have worked very hard to achieve the AQS and the Board will be making sure that they maintain these high standards over the course of the year.”

The AQS is awarded by the national umbrella group, the Advice Services Alliance.

The ASA Director Lindsey Poole said: “The AQS is a tough benchmark to achieve, particularly in challenging times for the voluntary sector and our clients and we offer our congratulations to Dial West Cheshire for so clearly making the grade.”

Dial West Cheshire will proudly display the AQS logo, joining the community of over 650 organisations across the country of AQS holders.
