Investing in Volunteers | your views by 17.06.19

The four Investing in Volunteers country leads (NCVO, Volunteer Now, Volunteer Scotland and Wales Council for Voluntary Action) are working with Ideas to Impact to consult on future developments of IiV and a new standard for 2020. This will review the elements of the current standard, update the language to ensure it is inclusive and applicable to a wider range of organisations and volunteering groups, and incorporate the findings from recent research on volunteers’ experiences.

We are keen to hear from people, including volunteers, from different types of organisations and volunteer roles.

To get involved you can:

English –

This stage of the consultation closes on 17 June 2019. Will we also be asking for people to be involved in the second stage of testing the standard’s developments at the end of the online survey.


A note to the IiV community: The new standard will encompass the same values and core practice of the current standard and any new / current IiV journeys or IiV awards will still be valid. All organisations renewing IiV awards in the future will be supported with any changes made to the standard during IiV renewal journeys.
