The Macmillan Volunteering Quality Standards (MVQS) provide an easy way to ensure you are meeting best practice guidelines
If you manage volunteers, you can now experience the many benefits that come with adopting the MVQS.
Whether you are a part of a small service with one or two volunteers, or a large-scale volunteer programme with many volunteers to manage, the MVQS will give you the tools you need to ensure your volunteer management meets with sector best practice.
The MVQS guidelines provide a simple, step-by-step framework to follow. Measurable and achievable indicators guide you through nine quality areas, which cover the important areas of volunteer management. The simplicity of the framework makes the MVQS a valuable tool if you’re new to volunteer management. Equally, if you are a more experienced volunteer manager, the MVQS provide an easy way to benchmark your practice and quality-assure the effectiveness of your work with volunteers.
