The volunteer programme at Exeter’s Royal Albert Memorial Museum (RAMM) has been recognised with the renewal of the Investing in Volunteers Quality Standard, the UK’s best practice standard for volunteering.
Volunteer activities form an integral part of all RAMM’s activities, both in public events and behind the scenes. The programme was assessed against a range of best practice standards – in recruitment, involvement, support and retention of volunteers – and has again been found to excel.
Delivered by Volunteering England, Investing in Volunteers, is the UK quality standard for all organisations involving volunteers. RAMM is one of only five museums nationally and one of only eight organisations in the Southwest to hold the Investing in Volunteers award. The award is valid until February 2014.
