The Volunteer Centre facilitates the development of good practice in volunteering through learning from the many organisations we work with. By ‘good practice’ we mean what you can do to make volunteering work positively both for the organisation involving the volunteer and for the volunteer.
For an overview of the range of services we offer, please see our We involve volunteers page.
If you are involving volunteers, apply for the Sheffield Volunteer Standard, a locally developed quality mark recognising good practice in volunteer management.
