East Ayrshire Women’s Aid were delighted to achieve platinum accreditation from Investors in People in March 2017. Of the Scottish organisations that achieve platinum, only 2% are third sector organisations and only 10 are ‘micro’ organisations of under 25 people. We were assessed as ‘high-performing’ across all nine of the IIP framework indicators. At our recent 18 month review, we were over the moon to retain our platinum status against all the IIP standards.
