Volunteer Charter

The Volunteer Charter is a set of 10 principles created to help groups/organisations demonstrate their commitment to volunteers.  Whether a voluntary group, community group, charity, social enterprise, faith group, Statutory organisation or other type of volunteer-involving organisation (VIO) - there is one aspect which we all have at our core - our volunteers!


The Volunteer Charter has been developed to encourage everyone, whether you are a small voluntary group or large national charity, to agree to the same FREE pledge of commitment thereby promoting and encouraging volunteering across the area.


In supporting one charter you will help to:

  • Outwardly demonstrate your support of good volunteer management
  • Increase recognition of volunteering
  • Identify and signpost to volunteer involving organisations (VIOs)
  • Promote standardisation of volunteering principles across the sector


The Charter was developed by the Volunteer Centre BWF with help and support from Wyre Together & Fylde Together groups and support from Volunteering Lancashire, One Lancashire & One Blackpool members.
