Measuring the impact of Investing in Volunteers

21 May 2014

We are pleased to be able to share the findings of the recently completed UK-wide evaluation of Investing in Volunteers (IiV), carried out by the Institute of Volunteering Research (IVR).

The independent assessment focused on the impact of IiV on achiever organisations over the last 6 years, with a total of 141 respondents providing feedback through a combination of a survey and in-depth telephone interviews.

A summarised version of the full report can be viewed by clicking on the link below.

We would like to thank all of those organisations who contributed to the evaluation, the findings of which will help to inform how we develop the IiV standard in each country.
