Cotswold Care Hospice believes in meeting the highest standards in every aspect of our work. We follow the best practice guidelines set by a number of professional and advisory bodies.
The Charity Commission for England and Wales is established by law as the regulator and registrar of charities in England and Wales. Our aim is to provide the best possible regulation of these charities in order to increase charities’ efficiency and effectiveness and public confidence and trust in them. Cotswold Care Hospice's registered Charity number is 298627.
The Care Quality Commission is the independent regulator of health and social care in England. Its aim is to make sure better care is provided for everyone, whether that’s in hospital, in care homes, in people’s own homes, or elsewhere.
It regulates health and adult social care services, whether provided by the NHS, local authorities, private companies or voluntary organisations. It protects the rights of people detained under the Mental Health Act.
Cotswold Care Hospice is assessed annually through a self-assessment process to ensure that it meets the national minimum standards. If there is a risk of standards not being adhered to, an inspection may take place. All services are inspected at least once every five years.
We are members of the Fundraising Standards Board self-regulatory scheme. It works to ensure that organisations raising money from the public do so honestly and properly. As members of the scheme, Cotswold Care Hospice follows the Institute of Fundraising’s Codes of Fundraising Practice and comply with the key principles embodied in the Codes and in this Promise.
The association is the only member organisation dedicated to supporting charities who run shops as part of their fundraising activities. By pooling expertise and joining forces to promote common interests, we help members to operate their shops as effectively as possible. Cotswold Care Hospice is an association member.
