Volunteer Ireland manages Investing in Volunteers (IiV), the national quality standard for good practice in volunteer management, in the Republic of Ireland.
The standards provide your organisation with a framework to benchmark the quality of your volunteer programme, guide you in putting the necessary steps in place to improve volunteer retention, manage your volunteer programme more easily and effectively, enhance your reputation as an organisation where volunteers want to be involved and ultimately help you deliver a quality service to your clients.
You can download a full outline of the indicators for the Investing in Volunteers standard here. The standards are applicable to all volunteer-involving organisations, regardless of size or number of volunteers involved.
Once you have completed the self-assessment you may consider putting a development plan in place in order to support your organisation to identify and meet the gaps in best practice.
