The plan sets out Volunteer Glasgow's ambitions for the next five years including our unique contribution to delivering the shared objectives of the Glasgow Volunteering Strategy and our priorities for providing effective befriending and mentoring services.
We would like to thank all of our stakeholders who participated in co-designing the strategic plan, enabling Volunteer Glasgow to make the most effective use of its available resources, delivering services that best meet the needs of the city for the coming years.

We can also confirm that we have appointed David Maxwell as permanent Chief Executive. Following selection, David has led the organisation on an interim basis since last June, successfully completing the strategic planning and business improvement processes required, and has, in addition, managed the service transfer and staff TUPE processes following our decision in December not to re-tender for carers support services contracts.
We are looking forward to working with David, the staff and volunteer teams, with you and with all our partners and supporters to deliver our strategic plan over the coming months and years.
On behalf of the Board of Directors,
Sue Kinn (Chair)
Tom Berry (Vice-chair)

Great news! A fully qualified Music Technology graduate has been in touch to say that he would like to offer up his skills and expertise to any organisation in need! Since graduating, David has further developed his skills in roles such as internships at the BBC including the One Show and Radio 5.

Perhaps audio technology is already part of what you do and you simply need an extra pair of hands to help out with this. If so, then David would be keen to get involved. He has his own transport and can travel city wide. He is  particularly interested in music and technical based roles. Do you have an exciting event coming up that requires audio technology? Perhaps you need footage of a recent event edited - whatever the role, David would love to hear from you.

Many organisations employ different art forms to enhance the work that they do. Music, film and all other mediums are an incredible way to promote your project and organisation. Would you like some help with this? David would be happy to come out to you and offer up his skills. This might be producing a short video about your project or local community. Perhaps there is something musical you would like him to help you with? Whatever you have in mind, if it involves music, technology, audio or video skills then David can help - get in touch with your idea today!

QIBe2_rgbVolunteer Glasgow is delighted to share the news that our Young Persons Befriending Service has been awarded 'Quality in Befriending Excellence'!

It's now one of only four young persons' befriending projects to hold the Gold level of this award, which was developed by Befriending Networks, based in Scotland with international membership. Jean Inglis, Co-ordinator of the Service, said 'The application process was hard work, but we wanted to do justice to the service and all the people who've contributed to it - our young people, volunteers and staff, past and present'.

Quality in Befriending requires evidence of good practice across nine different elements of befriending.

Jean added: 'We hope the award inspires people to get involved in the service - whether they are young people and parents, volunteers, partner agencies or funders.'
