Community of Communities

What is the Community of Communities?

The Community of Communities (C of C) is a quality improvement and accreditation programme for Therapeutic Communities (TCs) in the UK and overseas. Our work supports members to meet the highest standards of TC practice through a process of self- and peer-review.

Member TCs work with adults and children with a range of complex needs including personality disorder, offending behaviour, addictions, learning disabilities and severe mental illness. They are found within health, education, social care and prison settings.

Community of Communities (C of C) is an initiative of the College Centre for Quality Improvement (CCQI), working in partnership with The Consortium of Therapeutic Communities (TCTC) and the Planned Environment Therapy Trust (PETT).

Members of Community of Communities have access to the Members Tools area of the website which provides useful links and documents to download to support your work within the therapeutic community.
