SCCSS receives 5th successful CARF Accreditation
SCCSS are pleased to announce that we have officially received our 5th successful accreditation.
CARF International is an independent, non-profit accreditor of health and human services organizations globally. As an organization serving our local communities, Sunshine Coast Community Services (SCCSS) is committed to improving the quality of the lives of the people we serve. We see accreditation as a valuable process to ensure that we offer the highest quality of service. Every three years, SCCSS goes through an in-depth on-site accreditation process that applies CARF’s internationally recognized standards to our work during a three-day site visit led by peer surveyors.
Achieving CARF accreditation entails reviewing over 2,500 CARF standards and providing evidence that we have met these standards satisfactorily through our daily practices and supporting documentation. In March 2021, despite COVID protocol challenges, we once again welcomed the opportunity to have an external group of peer surveyors review our programs, this time through a rigorous online process. At the end of the three days, the CARF surveyors were well prepared to give feedback about our strengths and identify areas for quality improvement.
We are proud of the results and even prouder to share what our clients and surveyors had to say about our work:
We are delighted to share this feedback with our community and want to take this opportunity to thank all who participated in the accreditation process. Our commitment to you is to provide the best possible services to the Sunshine Coast Community.
