Quality mark for Naval Welfare community project

Quality mark for Royal Navy Royal Marines Welfare community project
24 July 2018
A community project aimed at helping Naval Service families has received a top accreditation.

The Royal Navy Royal Marines Welfare (RNRMW) Community Volunteer Project (CVP) is a partnership with Improving Lives Plymouth (ILP).

The project is in its first year and has been funded by a £45,000 grant from the Royal Navy Royal Marines Charity Helping Hands project, which enables the employment of four volunteer co-ordinators in Plymouth, Portsmouth, Yeovil and Helensburgh.

Their main aim is to recruit RNRMW volunteers and identify training. So far the service has 62 regstered volunteers, who will help with more than 200 community projects to Service families, such as, child and family-centred activities and social events.

ILP is Plymouth's quality accredited local volunteer centre that provides support and expertise to organisations that involve volunteers. 

The first year’s funding for the project from the RNRMC has enabled significant improvements to be made in the recruitment and development of RNRMW volunteers

Helen Howlett, Community Business Manager RNRMW said, “The first year’s funding for the project from the RNRMC has enabled significant improvements to be made in the recruitment and development of RNRMW volunteers.

“Partnership with ILP and attainment of the Volunteer Connections Quality Mark has enabled RNRMW CVP to attain a high standard of volunteer management and support.”
