Connections with IiV Achievers

We are excited to launch this new learning and development programme "Connections with IiV achievers".

This programme has been designed to assist individuals and organisations with the development of volunteer participation. Through our unique learning approach, individuals and organisations can explore their understanding of volunteering, its current trends, change in climate, best practice and how it connects to the wider community local and national.
