- Managing Volunteers
- Case studies
Volunteer Centre Sutton is the largest in the country. We deliver a broad portfolio of services to enhance community well-being through voluntary action, encouraging and supporting everybody who lives in or visits the London Borough of Sutton to volunteer with a positive outcome.
Principally we achieve this through the delivery of actions under the six core functions of a Volunteer Centre as defined by Volunteer England, namely:
2) Marketing Volunteering
3) Good Practice Development
4) Volunteering Oppotunities
5) Policy Response and Campaigning
6) Strategic Development of Volunteering
Central to our role is ensuring standards of excellence are achieved in the management of volunteers and that volunteers are recognised for their valuable contribution to the local community.
The Centre also manages a number of projects designed to both support our social objectives and respond to local need and identified gaps in provision. These include for example mentoring, befriending and intergenerational work.
