STARservice Development Program

STARservice Development Program

The STARservice Development Program aims to build capacity and improve work practices in small community organisations.

This free online development tool tests community organisations in five areas: promoting sustainable and effective work environments for employers, staff, volunteers, clients and customers.

STARservice is excellent preparation for organisations considering accreditation in the Australian Service Excellence Standards (ASES) program.

Organisations that successfully answer all 18 questions earn STARservice status and improve their ability to:

  • attract funding and support
  • recruit qualified and motivated employees and volunteers
  • build a safe, positive and welcoming workplace
  • develop better policies, procedures and practices such as WHS, risk management and financial management.

Organisations must register by contacting us and read the online resources before accessing the STARservice Development Tool.

For more details, contact us.
