Volunteer commitment

Children 1st values the contribution of volunteers in making a positive difference in the lives of children, young people and families. To ensure that we can offer a positive experience to our volunteers while providing the necessary support and development for delivering high quality services, we make the following commitments:

Children 1st will:

  • explore the potential involvement of volunteers thoroughly when making plans
  • engage volunteers who embrace and reflect our values
  • ensure volunteers possess the appropriate knowledge and skills
  • provide volunteers with the necessary support and resources
  • treat our volunteers with respect and acknowledge their contribution
  • review and develop the involvement of volunteers in the organisation.

In recognition of our commitment to best practice, Children 1st has achieved the Investing in Volunteers award and is a member of the Scottish Volunteering Forum.
