Charter Mark awarded to GCHSCP
The Health & Social Care Partnership has been awarded the city’s Volunteering Charter Mark having successfully submitted its baseline census information and publishing a clear action plan for achieving its pledges.
Fiona Moss (pictured on left, the HSCP’s Head of Health Improvement and Equalities) received the Charter Mark certificate from Bernadette Monaghan, Volunteer Glasgow’s Chief Executive.
There is good evidence that volunteering brings benefits to both the person volunteering and the people and organisations they support. Volunteering means choosing to spend time unpaid doing something to help other people or groups, other than (or as well as) close relatives.
To support the development of volunteering, the Glasgow City Health and Social Care Partnership has signed up to the Glasgow Volunteering Charter.
Fiona said: “The Partnership pledge and ambition is to increase the number of appropriate volunteering opportunities for people within our organisation. A Partnership Volunteering Charter working group has been established to gather baseline data and to develop an action plan to fulfil our pledges. Our baseline data and action plan have now been accepted and published and the Partnership awarded the Charter Mark.”
