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.

The Volunteer Friendly Award designed and used by the Volunteer Centre Dundee has been acknowledged as a successful model for recognising organisations that are good at working with volunteers.  The programme has been selected as a Change Champions project and has received funding to be rolled out to the rest of Scotland through SCVO’s Supporting Voluntary Action programme, which is funded by the Big Lottery. 

Using that funding, Hilary George and Pat Cosgrove have now joined the team at Volunteer Centre Dundee in order to coordinate the rollout of the Award across Scotland.  Hilary is Project Coordinator and Pat is Project Administrator.  Their first job has been to organise the setting up of this brand new website to support the development of the award.
