Our Mission Statement

relating to all the staff and children. It is a reflection of the

which will meet the needs of individual children and their parents/guardians at a reasonable cost while reflecting the

highest standards”

Charter Mark

Charter Mark is the government’s national standard for

customer service excellence. Achievement of the standard is

recognised by awarding the right to display the prestigious

Charter Mark logo. The Cabinet Office owns Charter Mark

but recognition that an organisation meets it’s requirements is

only made following a successful assessment by one of

the four certification bodies.

Charter Mark holders have demonstrated that they offer

choice to their customers so that a wide range of needs are

catered for. The benefits of new technology are maximised.

Users and staff are consulted on where choices can be made. Communities have a say in the deign and delivery of local

services. St Joseph’s has held the standard since 2003.

Investors in People

The Investors in People Standard is a business improvement

tool designed to advance an organisation’s performance

through it’s people.

Developed in 1990 by a partnership of leading business and

national organisations, the Standard helps organisations to

improve performance and realise objectives through the

management and development of their people. Since it was

developed, the Standard has been reviewed every three

years to ensure that it remains relevant, accessible and

attractive to all. St. Joseph’s has held the standard since

1994 and has been reassessed on several occasions. It

illustrates our commitment to high quality training for our

workforce to deliver high quality care.
