Investing in Volunteers Essentials Consultation

Ideas to Impact would love to hear your thoughts about a new tool to support positive volunteering experiences and effective management, Investing in Volunteers Essentials.

They appreciate that some of you might be part of smaller organisation or groups who are not able to fund an Investing in Volunteers journey at present we would like to see how a new free volunteering health check tool could work to support your practice.

Useful background information

The four Investing in Volunteers country leads from NCVO, Volunteer Now, Volunteer Scotland and Wales Council for Voluntary Action are working with Ideas to Impact to consult on future developments of Investing in Volunteers (IiV) and a new standard for 2020.  The first stage of the consultation has involved reviewing and reshaping the main Investing in Volunteers standard, which is now being tested in more detail. This reshape will update the language to ensure it is inclusive and applicable to a wider range of organisations and volunteering groups and incorporate the findings from recent research on volunteers’ experiences.

An opportunity to have your say – Investing in Volunteers Essentials

Ideas to Impact are now consulting on IiV Essentials, which will be a free diagnostic tool to help your organisation or group to think about best practice in relation to how you involve volunteers, whether or not you are interested in completing the full UK-wide IiV quality standard development journey in the future. IiV Essentials will help you to consider if you have in place the best approaches for  effectively and meaningfully involving volunteers, and where there are areas that you might improve or develop.

 There are two main ways to get involved: 

The consultation is aimed at organisations or groups that involve volunteers but do not hold the Investing in Volunteers standard.
