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.

Last Tuesday (7 December) Dundee Lord Provost John Letford hosted a civic reception in the impressive setting of the City Chambers to present representatives of six Dundee voluntary organisations with their Volunteer Friendly awards. This brings to 28 the total number of groups in Dundee with the Volunteer Friendly Award.Display of Volunteer Friendly celebration cake, awards and certificates

After collecting their awards, the representatives from the six groups, Dundee Carers Centre, Dundee International Women’s Centre, Fairbridge Dundee, Food on Friday Association, St John’s Boomerang and the Women’s Rape and Sexual Abuse Centre, enjoyed a light lunch, a piece of Volunteer Friendly cake and an opportunity to socialise.

 The event also gave staff from neighbouring Voluntary Action Perthshire, who are starting to deliver the Volunteer Friendly Award to groups in their local area, the chance to chat to groups who had been through the experience. The groups felt that the Volunteer Friendly Award recognises not only their own good practice with volunteers, but also the achievements of the volunteers themselves and how important they are to the organisation.
