Code resources of relevance to the Quality Mark

Quality assurance via the Green Care Quality Mark (formerly the care farming Code of Practice) 

This page contains a number of resources, originally designed for the Code of Practice, but that remain relevant to the Green Care Quality Mark:

We have kept these visible whilst we update the branding and resources for the new version, known as the Green Care Quality Mark


Film - Why the Code is so important

Featuring care farmers explaining the care farming Code of Practice, what it entails and why they feel it is so important - both to individual farms and green care sites and also to the wider sector. Much of this also applies to the Green Care Quality Mark

“Having the Code of Practice has enabled us to network and build links with other farms across the country. It has also helped in raising profile around the health and social care work we do" Windmill Hill City Farm, Bristol

“We used the code of practice to help identify the requirements to make us a professional and credible social and care farm provider. It has helped us to focus on the right areas and been extremely useful when inducting staff and volunteers”.Hall Farm Eastoft, Lincolnshire
