What We Do

Engage Renfrewshire delivers a comprehensive volunteering service, helping organisations who need voluntary support, and individuals who are looking for opportunities.

We:

  • support organisations, community groups and social enterprises across Renfrewshire who use volunteers to deliver their services
  • support organisations to design and market their volunteering opportunities
  • register individuals who would like to find a suitable volunteering opportunity, and refer them to relevant organisations and roles
  • promote and issue Saltire Awards to young volunteers between the ages of 12-25 years
  • support and assess organisations who want to achieve Volunteer Friendly accreditation

Saltire Awards

Saltire Awards is the Scottish Governments national youth volunteer awards. They celebrate, recognise and reward the commitment, contribution and achievements of young volunteers in Scotland, aged between 12 and 25. Young people gain nationally recognised certificates, signed by Scottish Government Ministers, for the different amounts of volunteering they do. There are four milestones to the Awards designed to help you celebrate your volunteering journey - The Challenge; The Ascent; The Approach; The Summit.

You can find out more here www.saltireawards.org.uk

Engage Renfrewshire is committed to acknowledging our young people and promotes the awards in schools, youth groups, partner organisations, Engage member organisations and via social media. For more information or to register for Saltire Awards contact info@engagerenfrewshire.com
