Investing in Volunteers is the UK standard for good practice in volunteer management. Edinburgh Food Project is, and always has been powered by volunteers and we wanted to achieve the standard to show our commitment to and appreciation of our volunteers. We also wanted to take the opportunity to reflect on our processes and learn from other organisations.
In October 2021, after completing and reviewing our self assessment, providing supporting documents and going through hours of interviews we achieved the Investing in Volunteers award.
