Valuing Volunteers in Bexley is a quality standard developed by Volunteer Centre Bexley, based on the Greater London Volunteering ‘Experts in Volunteering’ Health Check. It recognises organisations that manage volunteers well and provides a positive, high-quality experience. Whether you have a large-scale volunteer programme or just one or two volunteers, Valuing Volunteers will give you the tools and knowledge to ensure that your volunteer management follows recommended good practice. Each application will be assessed by the Volunteer centre and recommendations will be made, in line with current practices. We recommend that your policies have been signed off by your board of trustee’s in advance of sending your application.
The aims of the standard are:
- To raise the quality of volunteer management throughout Bexley
- To ensure that all volunteers in Bexley have a consistently positive and rewarding experience
- To promote good practice in volunteer management and share good resources and practice
What benefits are there for organisations to apply for the standard?
If you are successful in obtaining any level of the Valuing Bexley Volunteers standard you will be provided with the official logo for that level that you can use in your marketing and in funding applications. We will also feature all successful organisations on our website.
Obtaining the standards will:
- Show that your organisation values its volunteers and manages them well
- Raise your profile and reputation as a good organisation to volunteer with
- Attract and motivate new volunteers to join your organisation and enhance the experience of your existing volunteers
- Provide a shared resource for your volunteer programme
