Winner of the MCA Social Value 2020 with Deloitte!

14th July 2020


We are thrilled to jointly win the MCS Social Value award 2020 with our friends and partners at Deloitte – for transforming volunteering services in the NHS

We all know the NHS is under increasing pressure. Rising demand coupled with workforce shortages is leading to long waiting lists for treatment, making it hard to deliver safe, quality care for patients. Deloitte who have partnered with us from the beginning have been a critical ally in helping us unlock the power of volunteering to free up staff time, and improve the patient experience.

Deloitte share our commitment to making an impact and supporting the NHS and local communities, and agreed to partner with us an provide a pro bono advisory service. They have provided fantastic support in the following areas:

  • Building the foundations – helping co-design innovative volunteering interventions that became the foundation for a pilot programme in hospitals across England;
  • Expanding the model – supporting us to secure funding to expand our model to Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales;
  • Creating sustainability – co-designing an evaluation approach and developing standardised measurements to assess social and financial impacts of volunteering;
  • Expanding to primary care – developing an evidence-base for volunteering interventions in primary care.
