The Volunteer Friendly Award

We involve volunteers because they are motivated, have fun helping and tell us it lets them give something back to the community. Volunteers are crucial to Brae.

    Success for libraries with award to recognise volunteering schemes.
    Libraries across Aberdeen have been honoured witha  national volunteer award.
    The Volunteer Friendly Award is a national quality standard developed and co-ordinated nationally by Volunteer Centre Dundee and delivered locally by Aberdeen Council of Voluntary Organisations who offer good volunteering and enable groups to continue to offer volunteering opportunities.
    The Lord Provost of Aberdeen Councillor George Adam presented the award to Aberdeen City Libraries which have shown working of the highest stnadard to involve and support volunteers.
    Mike Melvin, volunteer friendly assessor at ACVO, said: "it was inspiring meeting volunteers and library staff who support volunteering. The award and certificate presentations showcased just how understanding Aberdeen City Libraries are and the superb volunteering that is happening at libraries across Aberdeen."

In their own words

"It depends on how much the organisation has in place........ with the support of a link worker it was fairly straightforward on what needed to be done. It was just a matter of finding pieces of the puzzle. Not too time-consuming"
