In December 2017, Teen Action first achieved the London Youth Gold Quality Mark, a programme accredited by City & Guilds and, ‘a badge of excellence for youth organisations that are committed to continuous improvement through the involvement of young people in their organisational development (London youth).’
With our Gold quality mark expiring just over a year ago, in December 2020, we set out to renew our quality mark, giving you the confidence that our charity is run in line with relevant quality standards.
We are proud to share that on the 1st of August 2022 we were awarded the London Youth Gold Quality Mark once again.
In the words of Hayley Gleeson, our assessor at London Youth “The Gold QM is about showing that you are a real centre of excellence in the youth sector, and there is certainly plenty of evidence here that demonstrates this. What is really clear is your focus on true meaningful youth involvement in your organisation, and from your Youth Advisory Group all the way to your Director being a young former beneficiary we saw lots of examples in your folder. We were also impressed with your leadership and governance, with strong financial reporting, risk management, and donor engagement throughout your folders.”
We look forward to continuing to provide quality youth work, with young people at the very centre of all we do.
