Investing in Volunteers
Quality Standard in Volunteer Management
The volunteer department is delighted to announce that we will be working very closely with Volunteering Ireland over the coming year to review and assess our volunteer programme. The aim of this assessment is to ensure that we reach all the indicators required to receive the Investing in Volunteers, Quality Standard in Volunteer Management.
Our Volunteers are very valuable to us and they enhance the quality of care we give to our patients and their families, so we are very excited to benchmark our volunteer programme with this assessment and then award. A lot of work has to be done over the next year, and later in the assessment Volunteering Ireland will visit St Francis Hospice Raheny and Blanchardstown to speak with volunteers & staff.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate in contacting Barbara Kilbride or Brenda Lowry in Volunteer Services for more information.
