What have been the overall benefits of achieving/renewing the IiV accreditation?
It's made us consider properly how to offer the opportunities that we've provided for year in a way that ensures they're of a high quality and ensures we regularly check then in a coordinated fashion. Additionally it's a way to us to demonstrate to our partner institute that we're a quality volunteering provider and that we do so on limited funding.
What tips would you give to other organisations working towards Investing in Volunteers?
1. Speak to other similar organisations who've done it to see if it's worth trying
2. Consider if you'll have the time to do everything if you're starting from scratch
