Advocacy 1st awarded QPM We are proud to announce that our Advocacy 1st team has been re-awarded with the Advocacy Quality Performance Mark (QPM) for another 3 years. The QPM is the only Quality Mark for organisations offering independent advocacy. This mark is only awarded to organisations who can demonstrate that they provide excellent services in line with QPM standards and the advocacy charter. The team's Managing Advocate Abe Ncube said: Being awarded with a QPM for 3 more years, is another great achievement for the team. It’s wonderful to be recognised once again, for our dedication and ability when it comes to serving the residents of Harrow and Brent.
