Get Recognised

GwirVol believes that every young person should have the chance to be recognised for what they do as a volunteer.

Volunteering is important and you should be thanked for it and also have something to show for it when you come to write your CV or fill in a job application form.

MV – Millennium Volunteers

This is why part of the GwirVol initiative is the Millennium Volunteers (MV) Award. MV has been around for a few years now and it is a recognised Award that shows how many hours you have volunteered, when, where … and it is a great way to show what you have done as a volunteer.

Although MV is one way to
recognise your volunteering,
GwirVol knows that there are
others available to young people
in Wales. We work with many
of the organisations who deliver
them directly – people like
Sports Leaders UK and the
Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme.

Students working with UCAN Productions receive 50hr certificates from the Head of the School of Optometry, Cardiff University
