The Corner recognised with Volunteer Friendly Award

The Corner Young People’s Health, Information and Peer Led Service has been recognised for the third time with a local award which acknowledges the opportunities and support given to volunteers.

The Corner was awarded the Volunteer Friendly Award for a third consecutive term after first receiving the accolade in 2010.

The Volunteer Friendly Award is a quality standard designed by Volunteer Dundee to support, recognise and reward groups which are good at involving volunteers. Based on the national standard Investing in Volunteers, it has been tailored to offer a flexible approach for small organisations with full support from Volunteer Dundee.

Volunteers and staff from The Corner attended a civic reception at the City Chambers held by Volunteer Dundee and hosted by the Lord Provost. The Corner was among 20 groups which achieved or renewed the Volunteer Friendly Award in 2016/17for excellence in volunteer management.

Corner co-ordinator Manjeet Gill said, “The Corner is delighted to have been successful in regaining the local Volunteer Friendly Award for another three years. This award will help ensure that we continue to meet the requirements to provide current and future volunteers with opportunities to develop and grow.

“We greatly appreciate the work of our volunteers, who give up their valuable time to support Corner services.”
