Community of Communities

Annual Cycle

  • Community of Communities combines an audit cycle with the benefits of a peer-support network
  • Standards are agreed each year and then applied through a process of self-review and external peer-review where members visit each other’s services 
  • The peer-review process allows for greater discussion on aspects of the service and provides an opportunity to learn from each other in a way that might not be possible in a visit by an inspectorate 
  • The results are fed back in local and national reports and action is taken to address any development needs that have been identified
  • The process is ongoing rather than a single iteration
