AUNTIE PAM’S ACHIEVE VOLUNTEER AWARD AGAIN!
Congratulations to Auntie Pam’s who have once again achieved the Kirklees Volunteering Quality Award! The award recognises organisations that offer a high quality volunteering experience and is valid for 3 years, when it then needs to be renewed.
Auntie Pam’s is a place for parents-to-be to get support and help about issues relating to pregnancy and becoming a parent at their centres in Huddersfield and Dewsbury. The service involves a team of Volunteer Peer Supporters who are there to listen, offer support, guidance and signposting as well as sharing their own experiences when appropriate. Achieving the Quality Award means that Auntie Pam’s offers a positive and well-supported experience for their volunteers.
Becky Bracey, Volunteer Services Lead at TSL Kirklees commented:
” We are delighted to present Auntie Pam’s with the Kirklees Volunteering Quality Award again. The panel members were particularly impressed with Auntie Pam’s training and support for Volunteers and the opportunities for personal development. The model of experienced Volunteers mentoring new Volunteers was also highlighted along with the accredited training programme which provides an opportunity for Volunteers to specialise in a subject area. It was such a pleasure to carry out the assessment and find out more about the fantastic work of Auntie Pam’s”.
Lisa Akester, Service Manager received the award on behalf of the service along with a Peer Support Volunteer.
