Investing in Volunteers (IiV) is the UK quality standard for all organisations which involve volunteers in their work. Over 950 organisations have achieved this quality accreditation throughout the UK, ranging from small community groups that are totally volunteer-led to large national multi branch charities that have thousands of volunteers. If you want to ensure that your volunteer management structure is adhering to good practice then this is the quality standard for you.
The session will introduce you to the IiV standard, including what is involved in achieving the standard, the assessment process and the support your organisation will receive to get in shape. It will also provide information on the costs (including possible sources of funding) and the potential benefits to your organisation.
You will hear from Our Parklife, an organisation that recently achieved IIV. They will speak about the benefits of gaining the standard and their experience of the process. You will have a chance to ask questions and receive all the information you need to establish whether Investing in Volunteers accreditation is right for your organisation.
