Dóchas members are constantly striving to find new ways to increase their long-term impact. 

That is why Irish NGOs put 'Accountability' at the heart of their work, as for Dóchas members, being accountable means taking responsibility for your actions and responding to comments from anyone interested in or affected by your work.

Dóchas members have therefore set clear and objective professional standards for their work. And they provide ample information for all their 'stakeholders' to see how those standards are being applied, and - crucially - how people can comment on their organisation's performance. For at its core, Accountability is about involving and listening to people.
