Investing in Volunteers
Does your organisation involve volunteers?
Would you benefit from a UK recognised award for your organisation’s commitment to volunteering?
Investors in Volunteers is the UK quality standard for all organisations which involve volunteers in their work and recognises good practice in volunteer involvement and management. The award gives national recognition to good practice in volunteer involvement and management.
To achieve the IiV Standard organisations need to be able to demonstrate good practice in four key areas of volunteer management:
- planning for volunteer involvement
- recruiting volunteers
- selecting and matching volunteers
- supporting and retaining volunteers
Applying for Investing in Volunteers status provides the opportunity for organisations to review and develop their volunteer management and for good practice to be recognised and rewarded. It is also a way for organisations to publicly demonstrate their commitment to volunteering and to providing their volunteers with the best possible experience.
The IiV Standard is administered in Scotland by Volunteer Scotland.
Full details of IIV can be found on the Investing in Volunteers website.
