A mark of recognition for our volunteers!
SVC is proud to announce that we have achieved the Investing in Volunteers quality standard, in recognition for our excellent practice in working with volunteers.
“This is a big deal for us at SVC, we wouldn’t be able to do the work we deliver without our amazing volunteers! This award assesses our practices to ensure that we are supporting our volunteers effectively, and gives us feedback for improvement too. On behalf of everyone at SVC, thank you to all those involved in achieving this award, and to all of our wonderful volunteers who make SVC thrive!” Adrienne Earls – SVC Manager
Investing in Volunteers is the UK wide quality standard for organisations involving volunteers. It aims to improve the quality of volunteering experience for volunteers and to encourage organisations to better recognise the enormous contribution made by volunteers. Investing in Volunteers is managed in Wales by Wales Council for Voluntary Action (WCVA).
Around 70 organisations in Wales have achieved Investing in Volunteers to date, with about half of these having renewed the award - this is SVC’s 4th renewal! There are more than 800 achieving organisations across the UK.
SVC was assessed against a range of best practice standards and proved its competence in all aspects of working with its volunteers.
