During the accreditation, the team received highly positive feedback, including recognition that our submission stood out as one of the best. This acknowledgment underscores the team’s dedication and commitment to providing top-notch care and support to our service users. 

In the letter of accreditation, issued by the Director (Sexual Violence and Education), Sam Whyte on behalf of the Independent Accreditation Programme, It stated that “The Quality Mark demonstrates the commitment of the Beech House SARC and The Solace Centre SARCs team to the continuous improvement of the quality of support for male victims/survivors”.
