The Green Care Quality Mark has been developed by Social Farms & Gardens, with the support of organisations in the green care sector (including STH). The scheme allows members delivering green care services to demonstrate to their stakeholders that they operate a safe, caring, and responsible service. There are over 110 organisations enrolled in the scheme (March 2024) and you can see a map of those involved here.​

The Green Care Quality Mark is a sector-wide quality assurance accreditation for green care providers. The Quality Mark shows that providers run a safe, professional organisation and look after the people and animals in their care.​

The Green Care Quality Mark helps providers reach the minimum standards expected by commissioners, referral agencies and service users. It is a site-specific annual accreditation and is assessed by experienced green care providers.
