Quality

Carers Link aims to work to the highest standards in everything we do, and we have received a number of awards and accreditations for the way we work and the work we do.

Fundraising Guarantee Logo

Carers Link was one of the first charities in Scotland to sign up to the Fundraising Guarantee Statement. The Fundraising Guarantee is a positive statement about our values, culture and practices when we are fundraising, and outlines how you can expect us to treat you. It reflects our commitment to be legal, open, honest and respectful in all of our fundraising activities, as we are in all of the work that we do.

Carer Positive

Carers Link was the first employer in Scotland to become a Carer Positive Exemplary Employer, recognising our ‘carer friendly’ policies and working practices.

Investing in Volunteers logo

In January 2017 Carers Link’s Investing in Volunteers (IiV) Accreditation was renewed. IiV is the UK quality standard for good practice in volunteer management, and achieving the standard again shows how much our volunteers are valued, and that we can give them an outstanding volunteer experience.

Investors in People logo

We have achieved accreditation against the Investors in People Standard in 2005, and have continued to be accredited – the sign of a great employer, an outperforming place to work and a clear commitment to sustainability.

We are an officially accredited Living Wage Employer. The Living Wage is independently calculated each year based on what employees and their families need to live Carers Link has committed to ensure that all of our directly employed staff, contracted staff and subcontracted staff are paid a wage that meets their cost of living.
