How can we help?

Every assessment and rating is unique, requiring tailored solutions to address specific challenges and goals. We believe in empowering services to build their capacity and expertise in their practice and knowledge of the assessment and rating process.

Our team works closely with your service to understand your objectives, challenges and constraints, allowing us to design customised support that aligns with your needs.

How does it work?

You can contact our Sector Specialists to discuss what stage you’re at with your preparation.

You may want full support or you may have identified barriers in specific areas that we can offer support to overcome.

Please be aware that this is not a mock assessment and rating, this is a review of service practices. Your Sector Specialist will collate the information and evidence gathered to create a detailed report providing insight and outlining recommendations for best practice and continuous improvement.

Your report will be shared with your service leadership and a virtual meeting will be arranged to discuss the report.

Costing is dependent on service size and needs.
