About us

The Volunteer Friendly Award is a product of Volunteer Dundee, a charity started in 1997 as part of the Scottish Executive’s investment programme which created a complete network of volunteer centres across Scotland’s 32 local authority areas.  Volunteer centres are clearly about promoting volunteering and volunteer vacancies.  We also support groups, agencies and organisations to provide the best possible experience for the volunteer.  Over the years we have used our peers in the volunteer centre network, staff from Volunteer Development Scotland and the standards from Investing in Volunteers as sources of information and best practice advice.  We acknowledge all the work of our predecessors in getting to where we are today. 

About us

In their own words

"I have now adopted some new practice as a result of the award. For example, I have adopted an exit strategy format for interviewing volunteers prior to the conclusion of their volunteer agreements. This should help me to analyse their experience and consider any potential improvements as a result that might needed for future volunteers in similar roles."
