In March, we started on our PQASSO Journey………
What is PQASSO?
PQASSO is the leading quality standard developed for the voluntary sector, by the sector. Used systematically, it helps run organisations more effectively and efficiently.
PQASSO offers the following benefits for organisations:
- clearer outcome planning and delivery
- greater credibility and legitimacy with funders
- more efficient systems
- higher quality, user-centred services
- better leadership and governance
- more creative thinking, enabling new ways of working
- a commitment to continuous improvement.
We have a long road ahead of us but are very excited & dedicated to achieving the quality mark.
If you’d like to know more or think you can help us achieve the PQASSO quality mark in any way, please contact us.
We ran our Children’s art competition to in readiness to celebrate St David’s Day!!!….
We had some fantastic entries from local children, thank you to all who took part.
The winner was Gweno Gray who’s age 6 and goes to Ysgol Gynradd Gymraeg Evan James. Da iawn Gweno!!! Here’s her beautiful picture….
Jump, the indoor soft play area in Cardiff kindly donated a family ticket, which was Gweno’s prize along with her artwork taking pride of place as our profile picture on Facebook for March (visit www.facebook.com/wcdp1) and in our office window.
To kick off our 60th Year Anniversary celebrations we are having our offices refurbished!!!…..
Yesterday (12/1) we had our first planning meeting to start the refurbishment of our offices in Pontypridd. We are delighted to be working in conjunction with the Construction Industry Training Board, Four Construction, 3D CAD Wales and Pontypridd High School Construction Dept along with other local construction industry businesses.
The offices will be having a major overhaul, including a new kitchen, toilets and a cosmetic facelift. We are thrilled with the news and are looking forward to working with all throughout 2016. Look out for photos as the project develops…..
If you have any ideas and would like to help us celebrate our 60th anniversary, please feel free to contact us.
