Durham Community Action - Durham Volunteering Kite Mark

DASH achieved the County Durham Kite Mark certificate in December 2017. Securing the Kite mark shows an organisation manages a volunteering programme where volunteers receive a high quality, positive volunteering experience. 

It will help volunteers to make informed choices when they apply to volunteer, and they can be reassured that DASH have the correct policies and processes in place to offer a rewarding and positive experience. 

Gaining the Kite mark demonstrates that DASH meets standards to overcome barriers to volunteering, and recognises the value of recruiting and retaining volunteers as set out by Durham Community Action, whose commitment to volunteering is actively underpinned by the County Durham Compact. 

Durham Community Action have produced a case study based on our volunteering programme.
