Published on: 3 November 2023

We are proud to have been recognised for our commitment to volunteering.

We are delighted to have been awarded the Investing in Volunteers (IiV) accreditation – the UK quality standard for good practice in volunteer management.

Our volunteers are at the heart of our Charity and are supported by our volunteer managers to deliver our services and help people affected by lymphoma. Their time, expertise and dedication are integral to our work in making sure no one has to face lymphoma alone.

As an Investing in Volunteers (IiV) achiever, we have shown how much we value our volunteers within our organisation. The accreditation was awarded following an assessment of 6 quality areas of volunteer management:

  1. Vision for volunteering
  2. Planning for volunteers
  3. Volunteer inclusion
  4. Recruiting and welcoming volunteers
  5. Supporting volunteers
  6. Valuing and developing volunteers

Feedback from the assessments was exceptionally positive and demonstrates our commitment to investing in and supporting our volunteers.

This is wonderful news, and we want to thank all of the staff and volunteers involved in the process. We will continue to develop and improve the volunteering experience to ensure that volunteers remain at the heart of Lymphoma Action.
