MHA’s 4,000 invaluable volunteers have now received royal approval. MHA is one of 60 organisations – one for every year the Queen has reigned – to be approved by Her Majesty for the Diamond Jubilee Volunteering Award. This is equivalent to a corporate MBE.

Martin Lewis CBE, Chair of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Volunteering Award 2012 Committee, said, “The 60 organisations honoured today with The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Award for Volunteering 2012 have built their success on the dedication and generosity of thousands of extraordinary people, each of whom has devoted their time and energy to the simple aim of making their communities – and their country – a better place.” Les Sudron, Head of Fundraising at MHA, said, “MHA depends on the added value that our volunteers bring.”

MHA takes a number of measures to support its volunteers in their roles and to encourage their personal development. As well as ongoing one-to-one meetings with staff members, they also receive training and support. Thank you and congratulations to all our volunteers.
