A mark of recognition for our volunteers

SNAP Cymru has once again achieved the Investing in Volunteers quality standard, in recognition for our excellent  practice in working with volunteers.

“We are delighted to receive the IVV award and are so proud of the SNAP Cymru family and our incredible volunteers.  We are a fantastic team & believe strongly that together everyone achieves more.”

Investing in Volunteers is the UK wide quality standard for organisations involving volunteers.   It aims to improve the quality of volunteering experience for volunteers and to encourage organisations to better recognise the enormous contribution made by volunteers.  Investing in Volunteers is managed in Wales by Wales Council for Voluntary Action.

Around 70 organisations in Wales have achieved  Investing in Volunteers to date, SNAP Cymru have achieved the award for the fourth time!

We were assessed against a range of best practice standards and proved  our competence in all aspects of working with our volunteers.

“Achieving the Investing in Volunteers accreditation once more is fantastic. The accreditation process keeps us on our toes and up-to-date. It helps identify how we can continue to improve and develop the way we support and train volunteers in a variety of roles and activities. 

Investing in Volunteers demonstrates SNAP Cymru’s dedication and  commitment to sector best practice and  helps to recognise the amazing work volunteers do throughout our organisation and in the local community. I’m delighted for our staff and the all our volunteers, this is their success”
