Korina Tsioni, new Quality Mark Development Officer with WCVA, talks about her first visit to an Investing in Volunteers achiever, Vision 21 site in Cardiff.
What I do
Hi I'm Korina, and I'm the new Quality Mark Development
Officer with WCVA!
I'm running a 15-month research project in Wales to raise
awareness of quality assurance in the voluntary sector -
specifically on Trusted Charity mark (TC) and Investing in
Volunteers award (IiV).
Equally I am committed to understanding and gathering opinions
from the voluntary sector in Wales on the quality marks and
assurances that are already in place.
What has been most challenging the last two months is
understanding the audience I want to engage with (and remembering
all the different County Voluntary Council acronyms!)
But I think I'm on top of it now, and I've started visiting
voluntary organisations and projects, meeting with people involved
I am looking forward to travelling around wider Wales, so I can
start meeting in person the helpful colleagues from all the County
Voluntary Councils (CVCs) I've been talking to.
Putting names to faces will help a lot - I have already had some
inspiring email and phone discussions with some of them, who were
very kind to share some of their valuable wisdom with me!
