Volunteer Friendly Award
Volunteer Glasgow is no longer a Volunteer Friendly Awarding Centre but you can get the support you need to take you through the Volunteer Friendly Award with Volunteer Scotland.
Clubmark is a sports club development scheme which aims to recognise and accredit clubs that are fully committed to providing their members with a safe, effective, inclusive and FUN environment. It includes volunteer management: Glasgow Sport officers can help you get to the point where you might also be eligible for a Volunteer Friendly Award. More info is available on the Glasgow Life: Glasgow Sport website.
Raising Your Game
Is a fabulous tool kit primarily designed to help youth groups/clubs improve how they manage volunteers including their own young people leading. It’s available from the Youth Scotland website.

Investing in Volunteers (IiV)
Investing in Volunteers is the UK quality standard for all organisations which involve volunteers in their work. The Standard enables organisations to comprehensively review their volunteer management, and also publicly demonstrates their commitment to volunteering. The Standard is managed in Scotland by Volunteer Scotland and support in achieving the award is available from Volunteer Glasgow for organisations working in the local authority area.
