Now in its 9th Year, this award is very special as nominations can only be made by volunteers. The idea is to champion organisations who demonstrate quality in their volunteer management. To be eligible, organisations must demonstrate a basic level of good practice as demonstrated by achieving the Hertfordshire Valuing Volunteer Management 6 Point Promise – just contact us for more details about how you can sign up to this.
All nominees for the award were invited to join us at the Hertfordshire Volunteer Centres Annual Volunteering Conference hosted by Beales Hotel Hatfield on 6th June as part of our Volunteers Week celebrations. The winners were:
1st Place – Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue Service
2nd Place – Family Lives
3rd Place – Carers in Herts. Carer Trainer Unit
This year’s winner received our new trophy, complete with our new branding, to keep for a year to show how much they value their volunteers and how this appreciated by their team.
The trophy was presented by the High Sheriff of Hertfordshire.
Well done to all the organisations who were nominated for the award, and congratulations to the three winners.
Have a look at a slideshow of the Family Fun Cycling day that was held on 30th April 2017. Lots of fun was had by all.
