Kirklees Volunteering Quality Award

In March 2015 Locala was proud to be awarded the Kirklees Volunteering Quality Award. Valid for three years, the certificate is awarded to organisations to show that they involve volunteers in ways that have been agreed as good practice by Volunteering Kirklees and Kirklees Council. Good practice includes making sure volunteering is open to everyone, encouraging volunteers to develop their skills and offering support and supervision to active volunteers.
