DROP are on the adoption journey towards compliance with the Governance Code and to date we have completed approximately 75% of the process.
We have recently signed up to the ICTR’s Statement of Guiding Principles of Fundraising and have met all their criteria in relation to our fundraising policies and procedures.
In 2009 we signed up with Progression Routes in order to begin the process of implementation of Quality Standards in Alcohol & Drug Services (QuADS). The aim of which was to develop a clear set of policies and procedures which are good practice and QuADS compliant. This involved the review and development of organisational policies in the areas of Governance, Human Resources, Operations and Service User related. To date we have implemented 40 new policies across the organisation and have completed approx. 80% of the QuADS Organisational Standards document.
In 2012, with the support of the DLR Drug & Alcohol Task Force and EncludeIT a custom built Client Relationship Management (eCASS) System was developed for DROP and was implemented in 2013. This system allows us collate all our service user data in one safe and secure place and allows us track and report on client numbers and outcomes.
