We are accredited!

On 5th May, we found out that Our Parklife was successful in gaining the Investing in Volunteers (IiV) Accreditation – the UK quality standard for best practice in Volunteer Management.

This comes after over a year of hard work to get all the documentation and evidence in place, demonstrating the amazing contribution that you Park Champions make on the Park. From Customer and Mobility Services, Conservation and Biodiversity, Events, Mobile Garden, Community Guiding, Orchard Leaders, Careers days, and all the other wonderful requests we get! Our team and partners try their best to provide a rewarding, well managed, fun and dynamic programme.

Throughout the two day assessment over 30 volunteers were interviewed from all parts of the programme as well as staff and Our Parklife Board members. Feedback was glowing, and we couldn’t be prouder of our team of volunteers. We wanted to thank you all as Park Champions for your passion for the Park, enthusiasm and energy. Thank you also for taking the time to provide your feedback to us, it is really important as we want to develop a programme that is exciting, engaging, interesting and fun for you.

Last year you gave up over 13,700 hours of your time on the Park. AMAZING!
We look forward to a busy future on the Park in 2017 and beyond!

Come and join us on Friday 2nd June at 5pm when we will be installing the plaque at the Information Point. To sign up, please visit: http://volunteers.queenelizabetholympicpark.co.uk/vk/volunteers/my_opportunities_info_ur.htm?PID=10027263
