Charity scoops national award

Have your say

SHEFFIELD regeneration charity SOAR has been accredited with a nationally recognised quality mark for organisations that provide support to individuals to make learning and work more accessible - known as the Matrix Standard.

SOAR, based at Parson Cross, underwent three days of assessment by an independent assessor who tested its systems against four elements - leadership and management, use of resources, service delivery and continuous quality improvement.

As part of the assessment process, 15 clients and 12 staff were interviewed.
