THE Partnership of ‘Volunteering Cambridgeshire and Peterborough’ was formally launched last year.
The event, funded by the Big Lottery, was aimed at celebrating the partnership of the Volunteer Centres in Fenland, Cambridge, Ely, Huntingdonshire, Peterborough and Royston.
These centres are working together to deliver high quality, cohesive volunteering services to volunteers and volunteer-involving organisations across the county.
The partnership was awarded the Quality Accreditation by Volunteering England.
Over 150 people attended the launch, both volunteers, those representing a diverse range of organisations, the city and district county councils, the mayors and also YouthNet.
The guest speaker was Andrea Grace Rannard, Further and Higher Education Senior Manager at Volunteering England, who said: “The Partnership’s submission was outstanding and an example of how partnership working can ensure a consistency of quality services.”
Six other speakers gave their account of how the partnership had supported them as either organisations or as a volunteer.
Volunteering Cambridgeshire and Peterborough has created new leaflets aimed at organisations and volunteers, together with the website: www.volunteeringcambsandpboro.org.uk
