MVQS is a specially designed tool to help assess and assure the quality of your volunteer management. It secures consistency across the board, so that each and every volunteer gets a great experience - no matter how or where they volunteer for Macmillan.

Benefits of using the MVQS

The overall aim of the MVQS is to provide volunteers with a high-quality volunteering experience that is consistent across the organisation and our volunteer-involving partners. The MVQS will:

  • Enhance your work with volunteers rather than adding to your workload
  • Make your volunteers feel fulfilled, valued and supported to realise their full potential
  • Bring consistency to systems and procedures
  • Help to attract and motivate volunteers as well as enhance your volunteers' experience
  • Minimise any potential risk arising from the involvement of volunteers
