Quality Volunteering Award 2017


Quality Volunteering Award 2017


VAO will be delivering their Quality Volunteering Award once again in 2017, and are looking for local groups and organisations who involve volunteers in their work, who may want to work towards achieving it. This quality standard enables organisations to comprehensively review their volunteer management, policies and procedures and once awarded, allows them to publicly demonstrate their commitment to volunteering and volunteer management. This award is available for all groups and organisation across all sectors.

The aims of the Award are to:

• Encourage and establish good practice amongst volunteer engaging organisations;
• Provide support, information and advice to organisations who wish to meet the standards;
• Ensure that volunteers and volunteer involving organisations are being given the support they need.
• Publicly recognise and reward organisations who succeed in achieving the Award;
• Promote good communication and improve the understanding of the work that Voluntary Action Orkney undertakes.

Throughout the process the aim will be to balance the high standard required for the Award with a supportive, user friendly, recording and assessment procedure.

In February of this year, The Orkney Folk Festival successfully completed a QV assessment and were presented with the Award at the Orkney Festivals Forum Day. Their success and commitment to volunteering was recognised and celebrated in The Orcadian.
