Scottish National Standards for Information and Advice Providers (SNSIAP)


The Scottish National Standards for Information and Advice Providers (SNSIAP) are designed to help not-for-profit organisations providing housing, welfare benefits and money/debt advice to the public in Scotland to assess and improve the quality of their advice services.

Their primary purpose is to encourage agencies to adopt a culture of continuous improvement for their advice work.

Accreditation also demonstrates to the public and funders that your advice service is well managed and provides good quality advice.

What are the SNSIAP?

The Scottish National Standards for Information and Advice Providers (SNSIAP): A Quality Assurance Framework (2009) is the accepted quality framework for agencies providing advice on housing, money, debt and welfare benefits issues.

The SNSIAP framework is owned by the Scottish Government. In 2005 accreditation was introduced to provide formal third party recognition of achievement of the Standards.
