Representatives from the Investing in Volunteers (IiV) team at NCVO were warmly welcomed to the Blind Veterans UK head office in London to celebrate the organisation’s recent IiV achievement.
Blind Veterans UK is a national charity supporting vision impaired ex-servicemen and women. Volunteers can sign up for roles ranging from gardening to office work. Many are based at the charity's head office in London, or at its rehabilitation and training centres in Brighton, Llandudno and Sheffield.
The IiV achiever’s plaque was presented to the Chief Executive Major General (Rtd) Nick Caplin and the organisation’s Head of Volunteering, Victoria Dickinson. A number of volunteers also attended the award presentation.
Upon receiving the award, Victoria said:
‘We’ve worked really hard to ensure that we meet the high standards that are required by Investing in Volunteers and we’re so pleased that Blind Veterans UK was awarded the official plaque today.’
Established in 1915, the charity celebrates its centenary next year.
