Developed by the Tees Valley Infrastructure Partnership (TVIP) the Charter gives volunteers across the Tees Valley assurance that their volunteering experience will be as positive and worthwhile as possible.
The Charter does not provide set criteria for how organisations ensure the quality of their volunteering offer, but provides a list of statements, which they pledge to work towards in their volunteering practice.
This gives volunteers the confidence that they are valued and supported but allows organisations the flexibility to apply the Charter statements in a way that suits them.
Organisations are invited to sign up to the Charter now and will receive a Charter pack, including a suite of suggested examples to help develop, embed and uphold good practice.
If you are an organisation based in Stockton-on-Tees and would like to sign up to the Charter or for any further information please complete the form by clicking here.
