RNID recognised with Investing in Volunteers accreditation

We are delighted that we have achieved the Investing in Volunteers quality standard at RNID. 

The award is given to charities who value their volunteers and demonstrate their commitment to volunteering. It is the quality standard for all organisations involving volunteers. RNID in Scotland and Northern Ireland have previously held Investing in Volunteers accreditation but this is our first UK-wide accreditation. 

To obtain the standard, RNID was assessed against six areas – vision for volunteering, planning for volunteers, volunteer inclusion, recruiting and welcoming volunteers, supporting volunteers, valuing, and developing volunteers. 

The achievement of this award demonstrates our commitment to, and passion for volunteering. It also shows that our volunteer management policies and procedures meet nationally recognised standards.  

More information about the Standard can be found on the Investing in Volunteers website
