Getting accredited

If you’re interested in getting your organisation involved in the Community Safety Accreditation Scheme we’d like to hear from you.

The organisation as a whole and the individual members of staff seeking accreditation are involved in the application process.

Standards for accreditation have been agreed nationally and only after an organisation has satisfied strict criteria including race relations, equal opportunities and training standards will it be awarded the status. Employees must also pass an enhanced vetting process.

Before beginning your application please read our guidelines to make sure your organisation meets the criteria for application.

If it does you’ll need to arrange an initial assessment interview between our Community Safety Accreditation Scheme Manager Jenny Brouard and your organisation.

If your organisation is successful at assessment, we’ll ask you to complete the application forms.

There is one application form encompassing information about the organisation and confidential forms for each employee to help us with the vetting process.

To help keep the application process as simple as possible we’ve put together guides for both employer and employee.

Essex based organisations
