Recognition for our approach to volunteering

Healthwatch Islington has achieved the Investing in Volunteers Quality Standard for good practice in volunteer management.

Healthwatch Islington was assessed against a range of best practice standards and proved to excel in all aspects of working with its volunteers

Responding to the news, Jennifer Kent, our volunteer manager said:

Our volunteers have done so much work to help us get this recognition - they've reviewed all our policies and given honest feedback about the experience of volunteering here. It has really helped us to develop as an organisation. We'll be holding a celebration event to thank everybody, and we've got some exciting new volunteering opportunities coming up. Watch this space!

Investing in Volunteers is based on four areas of volunteer management; volunteer involvement, recruiting volunteers, selecting and matching volunteers and supporting and retaining volunteers. Further information about the Standard can be found on
