Volunteer Centre Services
The North Lincolnshire Volunteering Development Service is an integral part of local voluntary and community sector infrastructure organisation, Voluntary Action North Lincolnshire (VANL), and has achieved Volunteer Centre Quality Accreditation (VCQA) through the National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO), meeting the 5 core standards required of a good quality volunteer brokerage and development service:
- Strategic development of volunteering
- Good practice development
- Development of volunteer opportunities
- Voice of volunteering
As a registered charity our aim is to provide high quality services that link volunteers to organisations for mutual benefit. We support people that want to volunteer and volunteer involving organisations by offering training, advice and guidance on volunteering matters. We consider ourselves experts in this area.
In order to retain quality services we must now implement a charging structure.
All charges will go towards covering our operational and development costs. We endeavour to keep our fees to a minimum, however we feel that it is important that the Volunteer Centre Services are delivered within a sustainable business model, ensuring that we can continue to help local groups and charities in the future. We work hard to ensure that we offer a high quality service to all our customers and supporters.
The benefit of using local Volunteer Centre Services is that all of the money you spend goes directly back into the sector, improving the lives of people in our community and sustaining the support that local groups and organisations can provide.
The Volunteer Centre provides two distinct services for volunteer involving organisations. The Volunteer Brokerage Service helps organisations to find volunteers and the Volunteer Development Service supports organisations to deliver high quality volunteer programmes through provision of training, quality accreditation, advice, guidance and quarterly Volunteer Managers Network meetings.
