Awards and quality standards
We have achieved a number of awards and quality standards which reflect the high quality of our work. Prominent among these are:
The compact awards are designed to celebrate and showcase the most outstanding Compact working across England. MVSC and the Merton Compact have won 15 Compact Awards, most recently the Compact Leadership Awards and Compact Voice Chair's Award in 2013.
|NAVCA quality award|
To achieve a NAVCA quality award, a NAVCA member will undergo a rigorous assessment process to test that it is indeed delivering quality services to its local voluntary and community sector. The NAVCA approved award is assessed against the NAVCA Performance Standards and once awarded, the Quality Award is valid for three years.
|Investors in People Bronze award|
We have been assessed by Investors in People and given its Bronze award, reflecting our level of investment in our organisation and our people.
|Carbon Smart silver certified|
The Carbon Smart awards recognise work in reducing carbon footprint and improving environmental performance through clear, practical actions that are adapted to the business, staff and resources.
|London Living Wage employer|
MVSC is a London Living Wage employer. This means we agree to pay a salary significantly higher than the national minimum wage.
