RSG celebrating 30th anniversary next week





County Roscommon Disability Support Group CLG, known as RSG, is celebrating its 30th Anniversary this year. There will be a host of celebratory activities at the centre in Derrane from Tuesday, July 2nd through to Friday, July 5th.

  Meanwhile, RSG has recently achieved the Trusted Charity Mark. This is a quality award of excellence which recognises the outstanding work RSG does as a voluntary organisation in Ireland and RSG’s commitment to quality in all its services.

  Fr. Raymond Browne, Chairperson of RSG’s Board of Management, said: “This is excellent news for RSG, as we work to the highest standards and are committed to providing high quality of service and acquiring this prestigious Trusted Charity accolade confirms that we are getting this right as an organisation”.  

  Trusted Charity is part of the National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) and is the UK and Irish quality standard designed to help voluntary organisations operate more effectively and efficiently. There are two levels to the Trusted Charity quality mark and RSG secured level 1. 

  Nadeem Razvi, Trusted Charity Programme Manager, NCVO recognising RSG for effective governance and management structures, said: “We are delighted for the trustees, staff and volunteers of RSG that they have achieved the Trusted Charity Mark. We know that organisations using the Trusted Charity standard benefit by having better governance, better systems and procedures and better quality of services for their users and it is great that the community of Trusted Charity users in Ireland is growing”.

  For almost 30 years RSG has been an integral part of County Roscommon communities, voluntary sector and a leading service provider in the disability and older persons care sector. It is a Not for Profit organisation and registered charity that has developed and grown its business over the years in many associated areas. It is an officially recognised QQI (FETAC) accredited Training Service provider since 2010 providing healthcare training to staff and the public.

  Margaret Bourke, RSG’s CEO, stated: “The awarding of this quality mark means that our work has been validated by experts in our field and we have been highly commended for our commitment to quality in everything we do”.
