The Awards framework is designed to be delivered locally by community service organisations with support, assessment and certification services delivered by the College.  For information about this support framework, please contact craig@glasgowkelvin.ac.uk

Phased introduction of the Charter

  • Any organisation interested in the Charter should complete and submit the form here: Charter Registration of Interest
  • Additional support services from Volunteer Glasgow to fulfil Charter pledges will be limited to 30 targeted organisations during phase 1 (June-November 2016)
  • This will ensure strategic partners can make an initial assessment of the immediate impact of the Charter, the common issues and challenges faced by signatories, and the demand for support services.
  • Each of these 30 initial signatory organisations will have a named contact at Volunteer Glasgow and will be able to access additional action-planning Charter workshops. (A nominal fee may apply to workshops).
