Knowsley Community & Voluntary Services


Leadership - Ingenuity - Sector Social Growth

The STAR Standard is a quality standard that is designed to enable voluntary sector groups to demonstrate their effectiveness and contribution to local agendas.

Knowsley CVS is a license holder for The STAR Standard, an externally assessed quality standard developed by Halton and St Helens Voluntary and Community Action in partnership with local commissioners.  It has been designed with two main purposes in mind:

  • To demonstrate the quality of systems and services of voluntary, community and faith sector (VCFS) organisations.
  • To identify any gaps and areas for development for VCFS organisations to improve delivery of services and access to funding opportunities.
