West achieves Volunteer Friendly Award

We have achieved the much sought after Volunteer Friendly Award for our services in the West of Scotland.

The award was presented to a group of staff and volunteers by Paralympic curler, Angie Malone, on Wednesday, April 22, at a ceremony in Airdrie.

The Volunteer Friendly Award is a nationally recognised accolade developed by the Dundee Volunteer Centre.

It rewards organisations who prove their volunteer management practice provides effective induction, training, development opportunities and ongoing support and recognition for their volunteers.

To achieve the award, Cornerstone had to be able to give evidence of its positive approach to volunteering in the five set strands: Commitment to Involving Volunteers, Making Volunteering Happen, Fair and Equal Volunteering, Volunteering Tasks and Getting Them Done and Celebrating Volunteers' Contributions.

Cornerstone currently employs over 60 volunteers across it's services in the West of Scotland, helping to provide care and support in the community, enabling the people they support to enjoy a valued life.

Edel Harris, Cornerstone Chief Executive, said: “We really value every one of our volunteers who give up their time to help those we support and I think this is recognition of both their commitment to Cornerstone and our work to involve them as much as possible."
