Promoting Good Practice in
Community Organisations Across Fingal County
The Award Scheme is part of the Fingal Volunteer Centre and Fingal County Council’s activities to celebrate European Year of Volunteering 2011, and is intended to acknowledge groups who, through their commitment to voluntary and community activities, have played a significant role in enhancing the quality of life of their communities across Fingal.
Organisations involving volunteers will have the opportunity to apply for the award by completing the eight indicators at either level 1,2 or 3, and the Fingal Volunteer Centre will provide support training and online resources for the Award Scheme.
The Manager of Fingal Volunteer Centre said “This award recognises the valuable contribution that volunteers and volunteer-involving organisations make to their local communities across Fingal County. We are delighted to provide volunteer management supports to encourage volunteering amongst the 240,000 residents of Fingal and also to ensure that supports are in place for volunteers in the wide range of 650 organisations and 2,600 volunteers that have engaged with Fingal Volunteer Centre over the last number of years”.
Sinead Wiley, Senior Community Officer Fingal County Council added “Fingal County Council Community Office is delighted to be involved in the design and development of the Fingal Managing Volunteer Awards. Local Voluntary Organisations are the bedrock of vibrant communities and provide invaluable social activities for people living in County Fingal. It is therefore important to acknowledge and support their efforts and the work of the Fingal Volunteer Centre”.
