Charter Signatories’ Commitments
Organisations that sign Glasgow’s Volunteering Charter will be expected to:
- Give Volunteer Glasgow permission to display the organisation’s name, logo, senior officer contact and Charter status milestones on the Volunteer Glasgow web site.
- Attend our free, introductory Charter workshop for all new signatory organisations.
And in order to obtain the right to use the Charter Mark, signatory organisations must:
- Confirm that the organisation’s governing body or appropriate senior decision-maker has endorsed their Charter pledge(s) and has made a commitment to the Charter principles
- Confirm the name(s) of the senior officer(s) that will be taking lead responsibility for volunteering policy and strategy
- Complete a Charter census form to provide baseline data on the diversity of their volunteering workforce and/or on the number of roles and opportunities undertaken by people volunteering
- Develop and submit an action plan to fulfil their organisation’s Charter pledge(s), taking advantage of the support services available as appropriate.
In order to retain the right to use the Charter Mark, signatory organisations must:
- Submit a Charter census form in April every year.
- Demonstrate progress towards achieving their Charter pledge(s).
