Royal Trinity Hospice has successfully renewed and been reaccredited in the Investing in Volunteers quality standard for the fourth time in a row. 

Trinity was assessed against a range of best practice standards and proved to excel in all six aspects.

Investing in Volunteers is the UK quality standard for all organisations who offer a volunteer programme, and is granted in recognition of organisations who demonstrate excellence in their volunteer management.

Trinity’s volunteering programme currently has 330 people regularly providing support at the hospice, across the community, and within the 21 charity shops located throughout south west and central London.

Celia Abbott, Volunteering Manager runs Trinity’s volunteering programme and recognises the credibility the award offers the charity:

“It’s an amazing achievement for us at Trinity and I’m really proud we have this accomplishment to show we are a reputable provider of volunteering opportunities. We couldn’t have done this without our loyal volunteers. Every one of them puts in all the extra time and helps to make the organisation what it is.”

Trinity was last awarded the accreditation in 2018 and will hold the award for another three years. It is hoped people looking to volunteer their time will see the appeal of volunteering with Trinity and get in touch.

Chief Executive Emily Carter said of the award:

“We’re so proud to have the Investing in Volunteers accreditation but moreover we’re very grateful to all our volunteers for the support they provide to the organisation and most importantly to our patients and their family members. We couldn’t deliver the service that we do without our volunteers and we’re incredibly grateful for all they do.”
