Le Chéile Receives Mentoring and Befriending Accreditation
Le Chéile has received its renewed accreditation from the NCVO in the UK for the Mentoring and Befriending Approved Provider Standard.
The process involved a lengthy and thorough analysis of our policies and procedures assessed against ten specific requirements in four key areas. These key areas included:
- Management and operation
- Service users (mentees and befriendees)
- Mentors and befrienders
- The mentoring and befriending relationship
An Assessor also visited three projects to interview staff, mentors and service users about their experiences with Le Chéile.
Accreditation will now last for the next three years until April 2023.
We would like to thank all of our staff, volunteers and service users that took part in the process or contributed in any way but we would also like to thank everyone that helps us to deliver quality mentoring every single day, which places young people and families at the centre of everything we do. We couldn’t do it without you!
