Should we go for the Gold Award?

A guide for services preparing for re-assessment

Home > Guidance for health professionals going Baby Friendly > Achieving Sustainability: Should we go for the Gold Award?

This infosheet will support services to decide when to go for an Achieving Sustainability assessment, leading to the Gold Award.

In November 2016 Unicef UK launched new Achieving Sustainability standards, designed to help services to embed Baby Friendly care in their workplace for the long term. From July 2017 services that are currently accredited as Baby Friendly will be eligible to be assessed against these standards at their next scheduled re-assessment. If the service meets all of the criteria, they will then be accredited as a Gold Baby Friendly service. This infosheet explains the Gold Award, when services are eligible to go for Gold and how the Achieving Sustainability assessment will work.

Find out more in the Achieving Sustainability Standards and Guidance document, and our Achieving Sustainability course.
