A Good Volunteering Standard for Nottingham

During 2019, NCVS and partner organisations across the city met to create A Good Volunteering Standard for Nottingham, to form the basis of a Volunteer Strategy for the city.

A cross-sector partnership continues to review and develop these principles. The latest version was updated in April 2021.
