Triangle of Care accreditation

Our inpatient wards and Crisis Resolution and Home Treatment teams have achieved Stage 1 of the Triangle of Care kitemark from the Carers Trust.

The teams have undertaken rigorous self-assessments to demonstrate how they are embedding the Triangle of Care standards and their commitment to ongoing improvements and clear carer involvement.

We will be undertaking our Stage 2 during 2018 with a full self-assessment of both Community and Specialist Services.

The Triangle of Care membership scheme is designed to:

  • improve service delivery
  • highlight good practice
  • ensure consistency of carer involvement across an organisation
  • build partnership working between statutory and third sector organisations
  • build a carer inclusive/whole family/network approach to care.
