The Volunteer Centre Values

We have the responsibility to the Havering community to deliver relevant services that are needed, appropriate and sustainable.

Volunteering makes a significant and irreplaceable contribution to the local economy.

Volunteer’s contributions to organisations should be widely recognised.

It should be open to all, regardless of an individual’s background.

We strive to eliminate barriers to volunteering and enable people facing disadvantage or discrimination to volunteer.

We value being supportive and providing mutual support and encouraging one another.

Our volunteers are valued and will be treated with fairness and respect.

Volunteering is an important expression of citizenship and can help build community cohesion.

Volunteering is a mutual exchange, where the volunteer, organisation and community all benefit.

To be influential and harness people’s skills and build their confidence.

Above all volunteering is fun!
