Why Should I Apply?

The AQS is recognised by all advice networks, by the legal sector as well as by many funders.  Accreditation provides you with a framework to provide excellent advice and continuous improvement, and the AQS logo visibly demonstrates your commitment to a well-managed and independent advice service.


In 2014, the AQS received full accreditation against the Money Advice Service (MAS) quality framework. This accreditation is particularly important as in the future, MAS will only fund services holding an accredited quality standard.  We are delighted that AQS holders will qualify under this arrangement.
