Glasgow’s Volunteering Charter
As an organisation founded and developed with the help of volunteers since 1991, Glasgow Women’s Library is delighted to be one of the first signatories to Glasgow’s Volunteering Charter and pledges to:
- Create and expand appropriate opportunities for volunteering within our organisation,
- Ensure these opportunities are accessible to all sections of the community, and that our volunteer team reflects the demographics of the city.
The whole staff and board team is committed to these pledges and will be working towards the following goals:
- Action plan outlining how we will fulfil the above pledges can be found here: action plan for GWL
- Baseline census data about the diversity of the volunteer team as of August 2016. This can be found here:equalities-profile-of-gwl-volunteers
As a result, Glasgow Women’s Library has obtained the right to use the Charter Mark. As one of the first five organisations to do so, the team collected their Charter Mark certificate from Volunteer Glasgow on 27th January 2017 (pictured below).
