The Volunteer Centre Quality Accreditation (VCQA) is the quality mark for organisations delivering local Volunteer Centre functions. It provides assurance to members of the public seeking volunteering opportunities, volunteer involving organisations, partner, commissioner and funding organisations, that the holder provides a high quality and effective local service. Accreditation takes place via a peer assessment and is valid for three years.
It covers the Five Functions of a Volunteer Centre’s work:
In 2022, NAVCA took on custodianship of the VCQA from NCVO, with the aim of sustaining and strengthening its purpose to support a strong local volunteering offer. As the national membership body for local VCSE sector infrastructure in England, delivery of the VCQA is aligned to NAVCA’s mission and adds to the suite of quality accreditation products it is developing.
All existing VCQA accreditations have been extended until July 2023.
