Foxhill Forum paving the way for high quality service delivery in Sheffield
Foxhill Forum is the first organisation in Sheffield to be awarded Quality For Health, a quality assurance system for organisations who deliver Health & Wellbeing services.
Foxhill Forum was established in 1995 primarily serves the Foxhill neighbourhood, and supports residents living in North East Sheffield area. The Forum provides a range of activities, services and opportunities for the benefit of local people across 4 core strands: Health & Wellbeing, Active Involvement, Community Learning and Employability Support.
Quality for Health was developed by Voluntary Action Calderdale (VAC) in partnership with Calderdale Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and piloted in Calderdale. Since its launch in 2015, Quality For Health has become a recognised and valued quality award to demonstrate the high standard of services that voluntary and community organisations can and do deliver in Calderdale and beyond. This system provides public sector and wider partners the reassurance that services are robust and delivering safe and quality provision locally and can also benefit voluntary and community sector providers in securing funding and/or new business.
At present, Sheffield does not have a local Quality For Health delivery partner but wanting to demonstrate the high quality of their services, Foxhill Forum used their own initiative and actively researched Quality For Health and signed up in 2017.
Mark Wilde, Chief Executive at Foxhill Forum said
“We are delighted to be leading the way in Sheffield as the first organisation to be awarded Quality For Health. Achieving the Quality For Health Standard demonstrates our commitment to providing local people with the very best level of service and delivery, and recognises the hard work undertaken by everyone – volunteers, staff and trustees – congratulations everyone!”
Dipika Kaushal, CEO of VAC said
“Foxhill Forum have become our first independent Quality For Health award holder in Sheffield and we are proud to have such a fantastic organisation leading the way for other groups and organisations to complete the award autonomously. Mark and his team have worked exceptionally hard and it is testament to the growing reputation of Quality For Health as an effective quality assurance system for a range of providers. Across the country, Quality For Health is helping numerous groups and organisations to demonstrate and promote the quality of their health and wellbeing services.”
