Accreditation applications open

LimeCulture is delighted to announce the Independent Accreditation Programme is now accepting applications for the 10th wave of services seeking accreditation against the Male Survivors Partnership (MSP) Quality Standards for Services Supporting Male Victims/Survivors of Sexual Violence.


The Wave 10 application window will close on Thursday 10th November. 

The Quality Standards for Services Supporting Male Victims/Survivors of Sexual Violence were developed in collaboration with commissioners, service providers and male victims/survivors who shared their personal experiences of accessing support and told us what they want and need from services.

Since it was launched in April 2018, the Independent Accreditation Programme has been opened to 9 waves of services supporting male victims/survivors of sexual violence from across England and Wales. To date, 45 services have successfully achieved the Quality Mark, and 6 more services are working towards it.

Services undergoing the Independent Accreditation Programme benefit from:

A workshop explaining the accreditation process and the opportunity to network with other services on the programme.

The opportunity to improve quality of service provision through effective performance monitoring and benchmarking against the quality standards.

Tailored feedback, guidance, and support from your Accreditation Manager to aid achievement of the Quality Mark.

The ability to evidence to male clients and commissioners that the service is delivering high quality support which meets the needs of male victims/survivors.



Sam Whyte, Director of Consultancy Services at LimeCulture said


“I’m continually inspired by the dedication and commitment of the organisations working towards the Male Survivors Partnership Quality Standards to provide the best possible support to their male clients, and am excited to work with a whole new cohort of services as we today open applications to LimeCulture’s Independent Accreditation Programme. Achieving the Quality Mark gives services confidence that they are doing everything they can to encourage male victims and survivors of sexual violence to seek support, and in turn, give their male clients confidence that their needs will be met through a high quality service.”
