What it is and how it works
The accreditation report is assessed by HDN Associates and moderated by a group of multi-skilled professionals, consisting of practitioners in housing and employment, members of the HDN Board and staff. The accreditation comprises of a desktop review, on site interviews with the organisations leaders and staff and customers. It encompasses the requirements of the Equality Act 2010, Human Rights Guidance, the CIH Equality Charter and also considers the opportunity to address new inequalities, new vulnerable groups and more holistic thinking to complement community needs and strategies.
HDN will produce a report and action plan for the organisation along with any recommendations for action. HDN awards distinctions for good practice and these will be displayed on our website and promoted at our conferences, to share learning.
