Would your Organisation benefit from a UK recognised award for its commitment to volunteering?
Investing in Volunteers (IiV) is the UK quality standard for good practice in volunteer management.
If you want to assess the quality of your volunteer management and involvement, prove and improve the effectiveness of your work with volunteers, and enhance your organisation's reputation, Investing in Volunteers provides the ideal framework.
Achieving the standard shows your volunteers – and potential volunteers – how much they are valued and gives them confidence in your ability to provide an outstanding volunteer experience.
Wales Council for Voluntary Action (WCVA) is managing Investors in Volunteers in Wales. The standards, assessment, and accreditation are the same for every organisation using Investors in Volunteers, wherever they are in the UK. There will be some slight differences in the way the standard is managed in each country.
To access Investing in Volunteers through WCVA your organisation needs to be based in Wales.
You can download The Investing in Volunteers Standard, free of charge HERE
Information about options can be found in the AVOW Information sheet 4.14 Investing in Volunteers, HERE
The cost of achieving Investing in Volunteers in Wales depends on the size and nature of the organisation and organisations undertaking the Health Check only, pay the registration cost only.
For more detailed advice, or to discuss what would be best for your organisation, please email IiV@wcva.org.uk
Alternatively if you register your interest online, WCVA will contact you to discuss the way forward.
