Should there be an award scheme for adult volunteers?

AWARDSWhilst the Saltire Awards acknowledges and celebrates volunteering by 12-25 year olds, there isn’t a similar, national volunteering recognition scheme for anyone outside of this age bracket.

Voluntary Action Scotland is working with Third Sector Interfaces (TSI) across the country to gather as many views as possible on how such a scheme might work.

Volunteer Centre Borders, a member of the local TSI (the Borders Third Sector Partnership) is hosting a workshop between 12.30 and 2.30 on Wednesday, June 21 to gauge local views.

A buffet lunch will be provided and the venue will be confirmed once we know how many people are interested in attending and where they are based.
