About the Award
The Investing in Volunteers Award is the only standard quality mark that focuses on volunteers, and is based on four areas of volunteer management – planning for volunteer involvement; recruiting, selecting and matching volunteers; as well as supporting and retaining volunteers.
COPE Galway was assessed against a range of best practice standards in August 2018. The audit involved meeting with over 30 volunteers, Board members and staff. We attained its quality mark standard on 28th October 2018.
