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.
