  • 'Reward and Recognise' volunteer involving organisations in a timely and effective way, for their exceptional contribution to the community.
  • Provide various opportunities to acknowledge and recognise volunteers and volunteer-involving organisations.
  • Help Volunteering Barnet encourage a culture of shared success and commitment.
  • Recognise that each volunteer and volunteer-involving organisation can make a difference.
  • Highlight processes, procedures and activities that have benefited volunteers and volunteer-involving organisations and showcase them as best working practices.

The ValueYou scheme provides a discount card to people that volunteer 100 hours in one year at one or more of the following:

Volunteering Barnet is working with ValueYou to administer the scheme and also providing a certificate of recognition for the volunteers.

You can register with the scheme by:

  • 100 hours voluntary service
  • completing a number of hours other than mentioned above, but when leaving an organisation to be recognised for their contribution.

These are sent to the organisation for presenting to the volunteer, in accordance with the report of the number of hours completed by volunteers, submitted as agreed to Volunteering Barnet.
