Southend Volunteer Centre is proud to have achieved an award! As part of Volunteer Essex, the 14 volunteer Centres have been successful in gaining the internationally recognised BS EN ISO 9001 Quality Management Award, for its work
in providing support to people interested in volunteering whilst also supporting organisations that involve volunteers.
Volunteer Essex colleagues worked collaboratively to develop this specialist standard of quality accreditation. The Award recognises Volunteer Essex commitment to exceptional quality of service and customer focus. It is generally accepted that organisations who achieve certification to BS EN ISO 9001 are at the forefront of their respective industries.
Emily Middlemast, Volunteer Centre Co-ordinator for Southend, commented: “We are proud to have the high level of service we offer at our Volunteer Centres recognised and confirmed external experts. We are delighted this has been recognised with a formal award.”
